George Harrison and Paul McCartney started out on my father’s guitars.
George Harrison, Brian May and Paul McCartney. They are all rock stars, but they also have another thing in common: they all started on an Egmond guitar. The factory where these guitars were made belonged to Joep Egmond’s father, who also had a musical instruments shop. Joep was born above the shop. So it was no surprise that he took over the store. He has gained invaluable expertise over more than 35 years, during which time he has encountered almost every possible instrument.
Joep knows that musical instruments are for emotional people. An instrument is their bread and butter, and therefore a good investment. That is how it was at the shop and it is no different at Catawiki. He likes to discuss the lots on offer with his suppliers. And thanks to his expertise and business instinct, he always puts together a great auction. Joep most likes to see the rarer instruments, such as a handmade Steinway piano. But he is also happy to include a beautiful violin or djembe in his auctions.
