A $1000 deposit is required to hold your place on the waitlist and in the production line, reserve specific wood pieces, and to work with our luthiers on your design. Before we start building your custom guitar we require a 50% deposit. The the remaining 50% is due upon completion before we ship the guitar.
We can also create a payment plan that fits your timeline and budget. Please contact us for more information.
Shipping costs are not included due to the high cost of shipping your guitar safely. We ship all guitars via Fedex ground unless you would like your shipment expedited. Shipping costs within the continental United States are usually between $60-$100 depending on where you are located relative to our shop in Longmont, CO. You will not pay for any shipping costs on warranty work done by Born Guitars.
We insure all shipments to their full value and someone must be present to sign for your guitar when it arrives. Your new guitar is one-of-a-kind and represents countless hours of fine craftsmanship. We want it to arrive to you safe and secure.
Please contact us if you have any questions about shipping.
Master luthier and Owner Jonathan (Jay) Miller builds every guitar at Born. Jonathan has been obsessing over guitars since he was in high school, and started Born Custom Guitars with the mission of building the best electric guitars possible. He has studied every detail of electric guitar design, traditional & modern building methods and has learned from many very talented and well known luthiers such as John Page. As a result Jonathan makes some of the finest electric guitars in the world. He tailor makes each custom electric guitar to your exacting specifications. Jay will even match your favorite neck shape from a guitar you own, or create a new shape that will best suit your playing style and hand size.
When you order a custom Born you will work directly with Jay to design the ultimate electric guitar for your playing style.

Yes, we will create custom stains, bursts, colors and finishes just for your Born electric guitar. Keep in mind that one-off custom work and designs cost money, and to make a custom color or finish look its best requires significant amounts of labor and testing. Your new guitar should look amazing and just the way you want it, and to do things right just takes a little more love.
