At some point you may like to have your very own specific details added to one of our standard guitars. Basically that is a first level of customizing; we can add features or exchange hardware for your specific desires. Obviously we cannot remove existing cavities, change the fretboard or other predefined mechanical aspects. The costs for this upgrade will depend on the choices and impact by materials cost and labor.
Obviously we can build a custom guitar from scratch, meaning it could be anything you like, with all details of your choice. There can be endless variations and choices of wood types, hardware, shapes, scales and number of strings, left as well as right handed. The possibilities are unlimited.
We get a lot of price requests and just as an indication we can say that a custom built, therefore a one of a kind guitar, can start at roughly 2000 Euro (including VAT, shipping in EU and Case).
As it’s impossible to be more exact on this we can say that most custom shop guitars are built within the 2.000 – 3.000 Euro range, always depending on the specific details.
We offer all the types of wood that are suitable for a guitar, from the more genuine woods like mahogany to the very exotic ones like black walnut, limba or bubinga for example.
We also combine various types together to make a beautiful blend that not only sounds great, but is also a treat to the eye. The woods we use come from a trustworthy supplier and are all certified to avoid any unnecessary damage to our planet.
Our custom shop guitars are handcrafted in our workshop in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands and built by Henri Sattler and Robert Schotman.
Apart from using high end woods, we also offer high end paintjobs, including airbrush, custom inlays varying from Tree of life, album titles, band logos, or any design you may have.
Last but not least we also offer the possibility to build a guitar you designed yourself.
