Endless possibilities.

Almost everything can be customized. Choose from a range of traditional tonewoods like East Indian rosewood, mahogany, and Sitka spruce. Or go for something more exotic like flamed maple, Brazilian rosewood, and Hawaiian koa. Our inlay artists work with pearl, metal, stone, and exotic wood to bring your ideas to life and add a special touch to your guitar. Maybe you want a special fingerboard that tells a personal story or a custom-designed pickguard to protect your new guitar. Consider it done. We can even craft a neck to your exact specifications. The possibilities are truly endless—see for yourself with our Custom Guitar Configurator.
