Thijs Pichel started building guitars at the well known Guitar and Bass builder Adamovic in The Netherlands. After a few years and a lot of experience, the People from Aristides Instruments asked him to work at their Company. Pichel learned a lot about composite materials, and was a part of the group which was doing all the shaping of the Bodies, fretting and fretboard inlays and reparation work, if necessary. In 2015, Pichel decided to make his own models and started Pichel Guitars. He wants to make high-end Guitars and Basses with A perfect balance, playability and sound, but also simple and rock 'n roll in the design.
