How to Order a Custom Acoustic Guitar or 'Ukulele

How to Order a Custom Guitar or 'ukulele:

I am taking orders now for new custom steel string acoustic, classical guitars and 'ukuleles.  With my current workload it takes me approximately three to four months to build a custom order guitar. To begin the order process, you should send me an email.  We can telephone, Skype or Google Chat too.  We will discuss your needs as a player and select tone and neck woods, neck shape,  body style, appointments, tuners, finish, etc. down to the very last detail.  I can also guide you in selecting the perfect instrument for you.  We will discuss pricing and secure a time slot to start construction.  Guitar prices run $4,500 - $9,000.  Ukulele prices start at $1,400.  The entry level base price for a handmade select all Mahogany, Spruce/Mahogany, Spruce/Indian Rosewood, or similar steel string guitar is $4,500.  Extras such as exotic tone-woods, special tuners, custom inlay, sound ports, cutaways, slotted peg head, custom case, and electronics will add to the base price.  Classical guitars are special order pricing only.   I require $500 USD to book a slot and a 30% deposit to begin work.  The balance plus shipping is due upon completion.  My guitars come with a limited lifetime warranty.  

I will list guitars here that I have in stock that you may purchase direct:

$4,750.00 - 14 Fret OODM acoustic steel string German spruce with rosewood with case and free shipping. SOLD


Guitar models: Classical, Hybrid nylon acoustic, Dreadnaught, Concert, Jumbo, 00, 000, OM, Baritone-guitar, Bass-guitar, baritone-ukulele, guitarlele, tenor ukulele, soprano ukulele.  Don't see your favorite guitar here?  No problem, I will make any body type.  

The price for a Dey Martin custom guitar similar to the 00-DM pictured below includes Ameritage Case is $7,500.00 USD.   It is modeled after a pre-war Martin* having scalloped X-bracing top and the 00 size and body shape that is becoming so popular again today.  This guitar has a Sinker Redwood top, Striped Macassar Ebony back and sides, and a beautiful Honduran Mahogany neck that was sourced from the paneling and bar of a demolished Irish Pub in La Jolla, California open since the 1980s.  Waverly classical style three-on-a-plate gold tuners for slotted peg head with ebony buttons, ebony finger board and bridge and a unique rosette with matching purfling and back strip make this a truly original piece.
