In 2007 I started building my own guitars. Being a musician I have
a lot of different guitars of the usual renown brands.
But I really wanted to create my own models. I didn't want to merely copy an established model, at the same time I was looking for a
shape that would have a certain "vintage" feel to it. After numerous attempts and failures, I finally came up with a guitar that refers from
a distance to the classics but at the same time has a unique and recognizable identity of its own: the Thin King. In the meantime more original Guttlin designs were created, for different guitar types and basses. Check the various models and builds in the above menu. In 2008 the Guttlin Supreme Tux was chosen Most Beautiful guitar
on the biggest Benelux guitar forum Gitaarnet.nl. In 2009 and 2014 two other Guttlin guitars came in second in that same competition.
Since I got a lot of questions about these Guttlin guitars and
I set up this website. Enjoy exploring the various models of these modern vintage guitars and feel free to send
me an e-mail or follow
me on facebook where I post ongoing projects.
