About my guitars

All my basses and guitars are truly custom built. They are all built by hand and use various combinations of first-class woods and hardware. Some of them were built based on my own preferences, while others have been based on my customers’ wishes. When you look through the galleries on this site, you will see that there are plenty of different variations in woods, scale length, hardware and electronics. That’s the way I think it should be when it comes to custom instruments!

Additional options

My guitars are all built to customer’s orders, and no two are identical. Some players wish a semi-hollow design, others have specific wishes for body wood or fingerboard, or electronics. As far as possible, I try to accomodate those wishes, and will give a reasonable price quote. To see a full list of available options and prices, please visit the Prices page. The custom options include the following:

  • Body wood
  • Drop top
  • Neck wood and laminates
  • Electronics
  • Body shape alteration
  • Semi-hollow (for some body shapes)
