Homestead guitars – Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Homestead team wishes everyone lots of strength in this uncertain period

At this moment, the world is severely affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19), the human and economic impact of which is immense. In addition to the personal suffering of the sick people, the virus also has enormous consequences for the economy. Many sectors have almost come to a complete standstill, including the entire cultural sector. As a result of the virus, most cultural events have been cancelled and this affects the musicians in particular.

In the interest of the health and protection of all customers and employees, Homestead carefully follows the advice of the Dutch government and its national health authority. This means that we, as long as the restrictions are in force, do not receive customers in our showroom. Of course we are available by phone and online. In addition, our partners in Bandung also have been implementing all necessary precautions. To date, these measures have not yet had a major impact on the delivery time of our guitars.

We hope that the coronavirus will be brought under control soon and that together we can start thinking about building our society again. Before that, we advise all guitar lovers who are forced to stay at home to pick up their guitar and practise, compose or record. Music relaxes, distracts and brings peace of mind.

The Homestead team wishes you a lot of strength in this uncertain period. Take care of yourself and your loved ones.

HOMESTEAD GUITARS

Love for the guitar, that was our starting point. And the passion to create something unique, something special. Together with our team we now make one of the best guitars in the world, a dream guitar with an incredible volume, sustain and expression. A guitar that also looks great and that you can compose completely to your own liking, your own signature guitar.

How did it come to that? More or less by coincidence, contact was established with a family business in Bandung, Indonesia, which has been building guitars since 1959. These luthiers became our friends and together we started building a high-end guitar. For a year we worked on all the details that improve the sound and construction of the guitar. Various experts in the Netherlands gave us advice and in May 2017 the first top guitars were delivered. George Kooymans from the Golden Earring was one of the first guitarists with a Homestead. His comment on TV-West was: “The guitar plays fantastic. You can see that it was made with an enormous amount of love. Real craftsmanship.”

Various tests gave our guitars the maximum five stars and the professional musicians who play Homestead are incredibly enthusiastic. Keyboard player Ernst Jansz of the famous Dutch band “Doe Maar” says that with a Homestead he feels like a real guitarist for the first time in his life. We are very proud that we have been able to realize our passion.

This is what we share with our customers and our luthiers: love for the guitar. If you share this love for the guitar with us, try a Homestead and be convinced. Believe us, that happens.
