How to order

A $2,000 retainer is required to lock in at the current price structure and schedule the build. This first deposit is non refundable and will be applied against the final price of the guitar.

You will be notified two weeks before construction begins and I will accept 1/3 (one third) of the remaining balance. When all woodwork is completed and before the instrument goes into finish I will ask that the second 1/3 of the balance be sent. The final 1/3 is due prior to shipping the instrument to you. Other arrangements can be made for overseas orders.

Price does not include shipping, insurance, state or import taxes.


Once the guitar is in your hands you will have 3 days to decide if it meets all your expectations. If you are not fully satisfied you may return the instrument to me in exactly the same condition as it was sent to you. A full refund (minus shipping charges) will be issued as soon as the guitar is sold to another customer. One-of-a kind instruments with unique and personal features are not subject to refunds.

A lifetime warranty is issued to the original owner against faulty materials and craftsmanship. This warranty does not include normal wear and tear, abuse, mishandling and storage in extreme climatic conditions.

The Essential

A tonally equal but minimally trimmed guitar is available for a base price of $7,300. Please inquire for details.
