Custom Orders


Let’s build you a guitar!

We have accumulated over the years an impressive inventory of tone woods for building guitars. 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 the Brazilian Rosewood is pre-CITES, but doesn’t have paperwork, so you can’t take the finished instrument out of the country.

For 2021 – as of Mar 25th, there is 1 build slot left. Base pricing for custom orders are $5000.00 USD for the Standard/Buckeye series which gets you a really nice guitar with most of the bells and whistles. Upgrades are figured or precious woods (like fiddleback mahogany, Cocobolo or Brazilian Rosewood), premium soundboards like European Spruce or Master Grade Sitka/Adirondack, cutaways, sunbursts, and premium tuners like Waverly’s.

Base price for the Artist Series is $6500.00 USD which includes upgraded Master Grade Top and sides other features.

One of the best ways to start a custom build process is to schedule a Zoom chat, where I can show you various models and play them so you can get an idea of the sound you want to get. Call or text me at 216-410-5052 to schedule a chat.
