I am not currently accepting new orders for custom builds as my wait list is full!
If you're interested in ordering a guitar, feel free to write or call and we can discuss details. Once we settle on a cost, I ask a $300 deposit which puts you on the list and locks in the price. I ask half the cost when I start on your guitar, and the remainder upon completion.
