Jacco Stuitje started playing guitar at a young age and was in various bands in Groningen. After completing his Computer Science studies, a career in IT was the obvious choice, but when Ferdinand asked him in 1994 to help out in the business, the choice was made very quick.
In 2000, Jacco opted for full-time instrument building and became a Partner in Rikkers Guitars. Since then his passion is to make high-quality, modern guitars with an eye for the wishes of the individual customer.
In 2017 he introduced the modern CNC in the workshop and with his IT-background it did not take long to use it for all kinds of improvements in our work.
