About us

"Aug has over forty years of experience as a musician (including stints with the Blitz and Betty Blue). He spent 12 years at Eindhoven Musical Instruments as a repairer and salesperson, followed by 16 years as a Sales and Marketing Manager for companies such as Line 6, Gibson, Epiphone, Duesenberg, Orange, Eastman Guitars, Vintage, Alhambra, Suhr Guitars, and Taylor. In this capacity, he advised and collaborated with various musicians such as Joe Bonamassa, as well as guitarists from bands like De Dijk, Common Linnets, Bløf, Racoon, Di-rect, Anouk, Rowen Hèze, Mastodon, Kensington, and others.

He was also a co-creator of the Artist Support Area at Pinkpop and provided support to various acts there. 'Looking from the perspective of the playing musician, I eventually started my own shop and workshop, and with great pleasure, I advise not only beginners but also established bands in the region. Beyond that, I have clients from outside the region, including people from Guus Meewis, Bløf, Diggy Dex, Oscar and the Wolf, and even Frans Bauer,' he said.

'The best quote ever was on a Dutch guitar blog. When asked what makes a good repair shop, this person responded: 'There is only one man who can touch my guitars, and that's Aug Oddens. I travel more than a hundred kilometers for him, passing many guitar repairmen on the way.'"
