Somewhere along the line, with a “one size fits all” mentality from manufacturers it became impersonal . Our goal is get to know our customers and what they are looking for in a guitar. Giving them the ability to have a unique, quality instrument that is custom made just for them. We view the guitar as a tool, that needs to be relevant to the needs and expectations of the player. Instead of settling for a stock instrument, let us build you your own custom guitar, no record deal required.
Our passion is in our name “custom”. We offer so many options, and don’t build stock instruments, so we leave every detail up to the customer. Our clients our able to choose exactly what they want down to the small details Everyone is different, therefore one guitar shape, sound, or feel doesn’t work for everyone.
