i was just wondering, what really is a custom shop? Do you get to give the complete specs as you want them and they build it for you? Who has the best custom shops? sorry this is probably a really stupid question but i just wanted to know
A custom shop builds custom order instruments for customers and endorsments. Yes some of them will make you a guitar entirely of your specs, but it will be very expensive, because they have to make new templates etc. Not sure who has the best custom shop, I guess they are all good. Just depends on what type of instrument your looking for.
If you want to go with a custom guitar you're much better off looking at smaller luthiers in your local area, if you find a good one you should be able to get a superior guitar for a much better price.
