Baard Guitars feature high end craftmanship paired with quality, industry standard parts. All bodies are made in house. All necks are custom made. No import, ready to go, parts are being used. Everything is tailor made to your wishes
ANCHOR III - STARTING FROM €3500
A bass with a sound on it's own. Very punchy, midheavy and in -your-face. Works great with pick or fingerstyle. Slap style bassists are going to have a field day with this one.
The pickups are custom wound and made specifically for Baard Guitars.
Inspired by the 70's basses of a particular factory from Kalamazoo. Vintage examples are getting harder to come by. Grabber, Ripper or G3, we got you covered!
ANCHOR BASS - STARTING FROM €3000
Based on the famous P bass. An affordable vintage recreation with some added features that will make this bass stable, detune almost never and will be comfortable during those long sessions. Also available in 5 string
IMPERIAL BASS - STARTING FROM €3250
My take on the legendary jazz bass. Also available in 5 string
SHORTY - STARTING FROM €2750
A shortscale dream. Imagine a 30 inch bass with enough dynamic range as a longscale model.
ANCHOR '51 - STARTING FROM €3000
The one that started it all. Vintage tone and feel, modern playability and reliability

Als je een gitaar zo strak in de lak kan zetten zoals Robin dat kan, dan wil je toch geen relic?
Hello! I'm Robin, a luthier from Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
I build all my instruments by hand. No prefab parts are being used, except hardware and pickups. I hand select the woods from premium sources to make sure I get the best quality possible.
The necks are carved one at a time, by hand, by me. I take into account the wishes of the customer to make every neck a special one. I finish the guitar myself in nitrocellulose lacquer to honor the classic vibe I'm going for.
Final assembly is done in house by myself, I set up and make sure every instrument looks and plays great before it leaves the shop.
Since 2006 I have been touring with numerous acts around the world as a backline/guitartech. I have toured with The Scorpions, Within Temptation, Adrian Vandenberg and Jett Rebel to name a few. Several years ago I decided to take on building guitars as an extra skill. I have been honing and practicing my skills ever since.
From 2016 to 2021 I have been the in house repairman at Keymusic Rotterdam.
During my stint there I've done around 2500 repairs, everything from fretwork to refinishing guitars. I'm a certified Taylor Guitars repairman and I've been published in "De Bassist" magazine issue of december 2020.
Among my clients are Henny Vrienten and Waylon, which I made custom instruments for
Perhaps my next build is for you!
