Guitars

 

CUSTOM ORDERS:


Guitars can be custom ordered directly from me on a build-to-order basis.  


BUILD-TO-ORDER GUITARS

Please contact me to discuss your ideas.  We will define what you are looking for in a custom instrument, and will come up with detailed specs and a plan for building your custom guitar.  I very much enjoy interacting with musicians to discuss ideas and concepts of guitar designs, and look forward to working with you to identify what you hear, what you feel, what you are looking for.


DELIVERY TIME

I am a single-person shop, building guitars by hand one at a time or in very small ‘batches’.  Depending on the model ordered, and my back-log at the time of your order, the completion time can vary.  As of January 2016, you will have your guitar within 6-12 months after your order, perhaps shorter for a T-style instrument.


DEPOSIT TO INITIATE THE BUILDING OF A CUSTOM GUITAR

A deposit of 25% is required to initiate a build contract, which will include a detailed description of the guitar, and estimated timelines for delivery.  An additional 25% deposit will be required before painting, with the balance due prior to delivery.    


Work on the guitar will begin at a time dependent on the backlog at the time of your deposit.   The build contract will stipulate that after work has been initiated, changes to the design can not be made.  Due to the custom nature of the work, deposits are non-refundable once the work has been initiated.



AVAILABLE GUITARS:


Instead of waiting for a build-to-order guitar, you may purchase available non-commissioned guitars IMMEDIATELY.  


Currently available guitars are listed and described in detail under the FOR SALE page.


Some guitars are available directly from me, and others are for sale at The Guitar Shoppe in Laguna Beach California  


Please contact me with any questions or additional information on how to purchase.
