About the custom order process...
Custom order build times are roughly around 6 months. There is no "rush build" option but sometimes guitars can get done faster and in other cases take a bit longer.
Guitar prices are based on the specific specs chosen and can vary greatly based on woods, hardware, finish, pickups and other electronics. That's why each guitar gets quoted via the contact form.
To place a custom order a 50% non-refundable deposit based on the total quoted build cost is due up front with the remaining half of the total due when the guitar is ready to ship.
All custom order quotes include shipping anywhere within the USA lower 48 states and a case for the guitar. Shipping out of the lower 48 states will cost extra. All sales within NY state are subject to sales tax.
The specs chosen for the custom build must be decided 100% before the order is placed and the deposit made. There are no changes to any specs after an order is placed.
The only change that can be made is the paint color which can be finalized when you're sent photos of your raw body and neck that are ready for paint.
