Tailor your Tone to your Personal Tastes
Our Made-To-Order Handwound Pickups will blow you away. Like anything, when attention to detail, love and the best quality ingredients are all mixed together, you get something very, VERY SWEET. We offer Singlecoils, Humbuckers, P90s & Lipstick pickups in a variety of tonal flavors & finish options. (Piezo & Active Systems also available)
A Great Neck is Key to a Wonderful Guitar
Our building process and ergonomic heel shape allows for effortless upper fret access and a neck that will retain uncompromised playability for a lifetime. Both our set necks and our bolt on system provide superior strength, rigidity and sustain.
Ergonomic Heel Shape & Press Fit Compression Neck Joint
Our neck joint is engineered to be as strong and rigid as a glued in neck, but with the ability to repair or replace the neck without sacrificing sustain or tone. This enables you to effortlessly drive your creativity and style throughout your entire Born guitar and straight into your amp. No undertone is lost, and notes are articulate, flexible and sustained. It all starts by building our necks so that they must be press fit precisely into place. We literally use a rubber hammer to gently tap the neck heel tight into the neck pocket. The neck is then locked into place by industrial vice sized power. All this boils down to excellent playability and superior tonal range.
Tension Correct Neck Design
Our neck building process ensures that your guitar will play its best for years to come by shaping it under string tension. This means that unless your changing string gauges or tunings you'll almost never need to adjust your truss rod. This is your Future Vintage™ Guitar.
Hand Finished Necks
All of our hand finished necks come in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate almost any player, and they feel super smooth and never sticky (unless you’re sticky) so you can play your best! All our guitars come standard with binding style fret ends. That's Right! No fret ends - just like a bound neck, so you will never have to feel or see those awful sharp fret ends found on most guitars. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because we know you will absolutely love it!
We only use top tier Tuners, Bridges and Electronic Components. No need for upgrading your Born Guitar, every instrument is outfitted with some of the highest quality hardware available. Our Electronic Components create something we call True Transparent Tone.
