Custom Orders


Let’s build you a guitar!

We have accumulated over the years an impressive inventory of tone woods for building guitars. All have been well-seasoned and stored in my shop for at least 3 years and some 25+ years. Choose any back and side and top combination, model style and finish and we’ll get you a quote. We will also work with you on binding and purfling requests. Please note that many of the Brazilian Rosewood is pre-CITES, but doesn’t have paperwork, so we can ship the finished instrument only to US addresses and we advise not taking the finished instrument out of the country. I currently have 1 Brazilian Rosewood set with paperwork.

Build slots for 2024 are sold. If you are interested in a build slot for 2025 let me know.  They tend to go quickly so reserve now.

A 1000.00 deposit reserves your build slot.
