Dutch luthier, celebrating 30 years of bass & guitar making

Rikkers boasts a rich tradition in instrument building. In fact, this year we’re celebrating our 30th anniversary. Founded in 1983, we are one of the oldest Dutch bass and guitar luthiers still around today. In 2014 we’ll be honoring our anniversary with the introduction of various new bass and guitar models, as well as a limited ‘30th Anniversary’ series of the Rikkers Hollowline bass.
