Any guitar builders for hire?

*If this isn't the right place to ask, please delete!*


I'm looking for a luthier to build a custom style Les Paul for me. Can anyone PM me with some basic rates?

if you give the specs you're after you might have a better chance!

Do you want someone to build a Les Paul guitar kit for you? Or do you want a custom built, one of a kind Les Paul? What's your budget, spec's, and time line?

Right now I'm just shopping around to see how much I should expect to pay, but here are the basic ideas I'm looking at.


Triple layer binding
Alpine White Paint + Painted Neck
Mahongany Body
Ebony Neck (No inlays)
Medium Jumbo Stainless Steel frets
Thin neck (1960's Gibson style)
Black Hardware
Two Volume Knobs
Gibson 490t bridge (I don't know what I want for neck)

490t is not a great pickup, did you mean the 498t, that is a pretty standard LP pickup, the 490r is a typical neck pickup. The 490t was used in the Gibson SG special faded for a while.

You might want to look at Agile, they do custom/semi-custom guitars for $1000ish.

What your describing is basically already available, Epiphone LP custom in white. It does have inlays and you'd have to change the pickups.

Yeah I meant the 498t. I've had an Agile custom with these specs, and it just kind of looked ugly because they don't sell customs of the 3100 series or higher, they only sell the 3010 series which look really nasty. I really don't want an Epiphone either...


I already have a custom King Bee Telecaster, so it's hard to want to settle with something I can't choose 100% accustomed to me, haha.
