Effective March 2016 – Please note that all wood and wood prices are subject to availability and market price. Please call or email for verification.

 

We are prepared to tailor the art to the artist. Our clients have diverse tastes and it is our great pleasure to craft guitars to fit each one. We do not have the desire to build “ordinary” guitars so we want you to help us to design an instrument that is exciting to play and to see.

 

Please let us know about you and your playing style. What type of music do you play?

 

This may feel a little like ordering a deli sandwich but we feel it is worth the time for you to receive a guitar that is really suits your tastes. Any of the smaller details that you are unsure about (binding, purfling, etc.), just leave blank and we can discuss. Or if you like, we can choose the detail materials for you that will make a great looking guitar. In all cases though, our emphasis will be on crafting a guitar that sounds and functions beautifully.
