Handmade Instruments

handmadeThe guitar of your dreams can be brought to life…

I make full custom guitars and basses….you can choose every feature from neck profile to fret size to pickups to type of wood…everything is hand made and exactly as you want it…

I can’t provide a price list, since every instrument will be unique. But there is no distributors margin, no retailers margin and no VAT to pay. As a guide, prices start from around £1,500.  After discussing your requirements in detail, with no obligation to continue of course, I will produce a detailed design specification and a fixed-price quote. When the order is placed, 50% is paid to allow purchase of materials, with the balance payable on collection.

I’ll take some photos during construction, so you have a record of your baby’s birth….

My instruments tend to feature fine woods, natural finishes and as little plastic as possible.

It is now two months since I collected my ‘custom’ guitar from you and I write firstly to thank you for making it and secondly to tell you how pleased I am with it. As you know I own a Gibson 335 which I have performed on over the last thirty years, however since taking delivery of my “Steve Kendall” custom the Gibbo has not been out of its case! The action is truly amazing, and the sound is delightful. The wood has a wonderful feel and the instrument asks to be played.
