What makes our guitars so special? When you buy a custom guitar you are buying an instrument that is handbuilt to your needs as a player rather than for the masses. The attention to detail and quality of materials is unparalleled. We are also proud to offer customers the opportunity to spec their own guitars and place custom orders from an array of expert builders. If you don't find the specs you are looking for on our shelf we'll work side by side with you and the builder to create the perfect guitar to meet your needs. The builders we work with truly love what they do and it's reflected in the instruments they create.
