Hi, my name is Martin van Humbeck. Welcome to Martin Beck Guitars.
I have been a member of the Guild of American Luthiers since 1997 and I have been building acoustic guitars for over 20 years under the name Martin Beck (van Humbeck just doesn’t fit on a headstock).
Each guitar is custom built in my shop, on the shores of beautiful Sproat Lake on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
While my own designs ( the Ashley and the JJ ) are my primary interest I also build Dreadnaught, OOO, OM, Ukulele, Resophonic, Classical, Tres and Acoustic Bass instruments.
If you have any questions about commissioning an instrument please don’t hesitate to contact me.
