Custom Instruments

Crafting a musical instrument isn’t just a service; it’s an art form, a symphony of craftsmanship and creativity where your musical aspirations take center stage.

I understand that every musician is unique, and that’s why my custom instrument crafting process begins with a conversation. I want to know your musical style, your preferences, and your dreams. Whether you’re envisioning a six-string wonder for rock, a versatile seven-string for progressive metal, or a vintage-inspired bass that grooves with soul, my personal goal is to bring your vision into reality.

Every instrument I create is a testament to my commitment to precision and excellence. Working with local hardwood dealers, I aim to select unique & high quality North American lumber. Then look to compliment the woods through carefully chosen hardware, and electronics to ensure your instrument not only meets but exceeds your expectations. From the curvature of the body to the intricacies of the fretwork, every detail is executed with the utmost care and attention, resulting in an instrument that is as visually stunning, reliable, and personal to your needs.

But our journey together doesn’t end when your custom instrument is completed; it’s a lifelong partnership. My dedication to quality and durability means your instrument has a lifetime warranty and I am confident it will stand the test of time, becoming a cherished heirloom that can be passed down through generations.
