Custom inlays I have a capable laser and can offer a wide range of personalized fingerboard and other inlay options in contrasting woods and colored acrylics. I also have a limited supply of Ivory reclaimed from old piano keys for inlays. I prefer not working with natural shell materials, but can work with synthetic shell if desired. All custom inlay work is priced individually so just tell me what you have in mind and I'll be happy to discuss it with you. If you have any questions about my building techniques or anything related to the custom building of a guitar, please feel free to contact me.
Pricing Quotes Upon discussing all the design elements and options with a prospective client, I will normally bundle the whole package in order to offer a reasonable final quote. Changes asked for after construction has begun may result in added charges.
Terms When Design and pricing has been agreed upon, and a client is ready to proceed with the build, I ask for 50% up front and will generally begin working on a build within a month depending on my current work load. Typically. I am able to deliver a custom build within 6-8 months of agreeing to proceed. the Balance is due upon completion and before shipping or upon pickup.
I would be honored to have your trust in building your Dream Guitar
