Art & Science

We use Computer Aided Design (CAD) to provide you with visualization of your future guitar. You will be able to see every detail of your new guitar from unique wood selection to control layouts and custom inlay design before we start your build. Once you've signed off on your design we machine your guitar body and neck on our CNC Machine to detail is cut precisely how it was designed. From there, our luthiers do the rest by hand to make sure every curve fits just right. It’s the only way to guarantee your instrument fits like a custom suit strait from day one.

Final Assembly

Once your guitar’s neck and body have been sanded and finished, they’re ready for assembly. This is where the passion, artistry, and effort we’ve poured into your instrument come together to become your dream guitar. Every guitar is assembled and wired with the utmost care and attention to detail. Before we’re finished, it will go through rigorous testing and quality assurance to make sure everything exceeds your expectations.
