Building A One Of Kind Instrument

Born builds each guitar by hand, one at a time, and tailored just for you. Every detail is considered so every aspect of your performance is amplified. That being said, custom builds take time to produce and our production timeline can sometimes span from 6 months - 1 year. As a result, we encourage future guitar dreamers to get on our waitlist sooner than later to ensure that you have a spot in our production queue. And at the very least, let's get the conversations started about what you are envisioning from your custom one-of-a-kind piece.

MY FAVORITE GUITAR IN MY COLLECTION

As a guitar collector, I have been wanting to add a specific type of guitar to my collection that I pictured in my head and could not find on any shelf. So I looked into a custom guitar and a fellow musician told me about Born. Boy did they deliver! My MG-Carve has become my favorite guitar in my collection. It's natural, smooth, and feels broken in like I have been playing it for years. What struck me the most was the quality and workmanship put into it for the price. As my friend puts it (w...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BORN TO ANY GUITAR PLAYER

I couldn’t imagine a better team to have built me a custom guitar than Born. Their workmanship, attention to detail, love and passion for each and every guitar is apparent from the very first day of the process. They work incredibly hard to ensure that your guitar is perfect for you. Not only is the tone beautifully rich, full of sustain, dynamic and versatile, but it reliably feels and plays unbeleivably comfortably! Born is the real deal. As a regular gigging musician, my MG Carve has becom...

EVERYTHING IS EITHER THE WAY I'D ALWAYS DREAMED OR, EVEN BETTER

My Born Custom isn’t just the best guitar I’ve ever owned — it’s also the most meaningful. The look, feel, wood, features, everything is either the way I’d always dreamed or, even better, a new and better way I hadn’t even thought of until I sat down with Born for their extensive and inspiring design process. I play it for 95% of every live show now, a couple hundred in the last 18 months since I first got it, and can’t wait to get back into the studio soon to get it on record, too.

KEEP MAKING GREAT INSTRUMENTS

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...

ONE OF THE MOST USED GUITARS IN THE STUDIO AND HAS ENDED UP ON COUNTLESS RECORDS

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...

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GUITAR KNOCKS ME OUT

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...

THE SOUND IS AMAZING

First of all, I want to thank the whole Born Custom Guitar crew for this amazing piece of art.
Where should I start? I will start saying that the guitar is amazing itself. The materials used to build this guitar are awsome and the best part of it, is that all materials are selected with an ecological mindset. The sound is amaizing and the equipment installed is high end quality. The customization is excellent; BCG build this guitar for me as I requested. It fits like a glove and that’s ...

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 BEST SONGWRITING BUDDY I HAVE EVER HAD

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 ...

AMAZING GUITAR!

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...

One of my main guitars

I have been using my “Born” guitar for about a month now, and it has become one of my main guitars.  It is perfectly up to my specs and it plays with so much personality.  It’s exciting and joyful each time me and “Pistachio” get together.  These guys really pay attention to details and character when building their guitars. Love it!

Blown Away!

Blown Away!

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.”
