I just wanted to send a note letting you know how pleased I am with my Retro-Candy Apple Red-MG Carve Top (now name Lucy). She is absolutely beautiful and put a big smile on my face when I opened her case. The fit and finish of this guitar is outstanding and the details Campbell worked out with me to make this a one-of-a-kind instrument are really cool and well executed. How awesome is that dove and peace-sign inlay at the 12th fret!
One of my favorite aspects of the guitar is the w...

Buying a custom guitar can be a scary process. I am always worried about putting effort and money into an instrument that I wont get to play until its finished. When I started planning my guitar with the people at Born they made process easy and painless. I wasn’t familiar with all the technical specifications so instead they had me tell them what type of features I’d want and helped narrow down the specifics.
I’m a producer and the guitar would be living in a studio so I needed it to b...

I could not be happier or more satisfied with the guitar that the Born folks built for me. It is an OG Drop with redwood top, Port Orford cedar back and neck, catalox fingerboard, chambered body, incredible hand wound PAF pickups, J.P. Woodtone saddles, and chambered body. The sound, the action, the looks, everything about this guitar knocks me out.
I was looking for a solid body guitar to use for jazz and was not finding a T-style guitar that I felt comfortable with. Campbell at Bo...

This guitar is a dream to play – exactly what I need for playing night in and night out The chambered body and humbucker pickups give it even more warmth and power than what I loved about my Les Paul. The Born team was great to work with through the entire design process and very attentive to every fine adjustment I needed afterwards. From the natural wood look and the custom inlay to all the nuts and bolts that give me everything I need for a solid road-worthy instrument, my Born guitar i...
I already own one custom Born Guitar, and I can tell you the next guitar I buy, will be another custom Born Guitar…!KYLE - KENOSHA, WI
Thanks for making the single best song writing buddy I have ever had. This was a huge step for me… Was I even worthy of even owning a guitar of this value? What in the world could this quality of a guitar do for me that I haven’t seen or heard yet? This guitar erased all self-doubt and proved instantly to be a highlight in my life. I have recorded and written several new songs truly inspired by this guitar. If you have a crappy bag of golf clubs and you want to ...

You knocked this one out of the park Jay! I own 15 great guitars from both big manufacturers and boutique builders, and this one blows them all out of the water. I don’t think I’ll play anything else again! Everything about this guitar (Redwood LTD) is truly amazing. The way it looks, the way it plays and feels, Everything. The neck is super comfortable, the action is perfect, and those P90 pickups are really incredible. I can get any tone I can think of out of this guitar. Beautif...

I love the guitar! The sound crew at Brauntex theatre is the same sound crew of Gruene Hall. We were playing a tribute to Merle Haggard and those guys were blown away. To quote them “at times it sounded like a telecaster, 335 and pedal steel…I had to lookup to see what you were playing.”
