De Haan Guitars is het high end gitaarmerk van gitaarbouwer Frank de Haan uit Alkmaar. In samenwerking met luthier Ruben van der Kleij bouwen zij onder de noemer Stoney Creek Guitars prachtige hoogwaardige electrische gitaren. Kom vooral langs onze winkel in Bussum om ze te bewonderen en uit te proberen.

The guitars are very well built with extreme precision. They stand out because of the use of different kinds of special woods, their rough and cool looks, ease in playability and authentic sound. ‘Stoney Creek guitars’ does also provide the opportunity to design your own guitar, which they will build on request. And they do not sell to the least of guitar players, Jan Akkerman (The Netherlands most well known guitar player) for example also plays a ‘Stoney Creek guitar’.

Stoney Creek guitars is part of the ‘De Haan Guitars’ cooperation. De Haan guitars was founded 5 years ago by luthier Frank de Haan. After finishing his education to become a carpenter, he decided to change his course completely and started to educate himself in the art of guitar building. What started in the shed in the backyard of his parents, ended as a true passion. He left the Netherlands and went to the USA for 1,5 years, where he did an education and internship at ‘Galloup’, a well known guitar building school. After his internship, he moved to England to gain more experience. Here he worked for ‘Patrick James Eggle Guitars’.

In 2013 he returned to the Netherlands, where he found his workplace at the Koelmalaan no.310 in Alkmaar. His company with workshop and showroom is still located at this same location. De company exists out of different courses students can follow and the retail of hand built ‘De Haan Guitars’. People do also visit ‘De Haan guitars’ for repairing or setting up their guitar.
