Depending on the requested specs (design, wood, construction, hardware, electronics, finish, etc.) the price range of your custom guitar price would usually be around 2500-4000€*. This includes a fully customized guitar in all details. You can decide whether the above price range fits into your budget.
*Please mind that if you’re planning to pay with PayPal, due to high transaction fees, an additional 6% will be added to your payment.
Please fill the contact form on the bottom of our pages to ask a proposal with detailed calculation and design mockup. To initiate the process we will ask you to pay a 100€ deposit*. The deposit on your side will ensure us about your commitment, while on our side will cover the cost of the detailed calculation and to create the design mockup. The deposit will be deducted from the final price. After we received the payment we can start to discuss the details about your requested model: design, wood, hardware, electronics, finish). It’s a successive process with many refinement steps until you get the image of your dream guitar! 🙂 When all details are clear we create a precise calculation and visualisation of your custom guitar.
*Please mind that if you planning to pay with Pay Pal, due to high fees the additional 6% should be added to your payment
After the design process is finished, we calculate the raw material price and send you the advance payment invoice with a pre-contract (including all the agreed details). The advance payment is at least 50% of the final price (except the costs of the raw material + parts would exceed the 50% of the final price, then the advance payment could be higher). After we receive the advance payment, we purchase all the materials and parts that we don’t have on stock and start the manufacturing process. The steps will be documented, and we’ll provide you photos about the progress. After we finished the guitar, the shipping method will be discussed and it’s price will be calculated. We will send an invoice with the remaining part of the payment that contains shipping. When we receive the payment, we carefully pack your guitar and hand it over to the shipping service we agreed upon previously. We’ll send you the tracking information.
Yep, (but we don’t like to copy one on one) whatever was already made, we’re able to recreate it. The rest just depends on our agreement.
If you show it us, we can tell you. If the wood allows that shape, we can build it.
Well, since every detail can be customized, your order could take up to 4-6 months . (after all the parts needed for your instrument is stocked).
The big factories have conveyor belts and are mass producing instruments,which is the reason they can sell their products at such low prices. Also, they usually have their factories in far East, where the labor of the workers is extremely underpaid and unethical. We’re making the instruments with best of our knowledge, from selected woods and quality hardware and we abide to fulfill the requests of our customers. If these are not really a criterion for you, then you probably don’t need a custom instrument.
We can install any standard (Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, EMG, Fishman) or not standard (various custom made) pickups into your instrument. As for the other question we recommend Bare Knuckle Pickups for metalheads and Kent Armstrong pickups for serious vintagers.
We can install almost any brand you want. We recommend mostly Zolkow electronics. It’s a Hungarian manufacture with great properties, like low hum, from 2 to 4 band, and frequency selection for each band.
Our workshop is Slovakia (Europe).
