OK, so I want until the end of August to get enough money for a custom guitar.

Now, some guy said me that he could built a guitar for that price because he doesnt seek profit in building but it's a hobby.

No, is it possible to build a guitar for 1K?

Specs:

Mahogany body

Mahogany set neck

Ebony 24 fret fretboard

Jumbo frets

Pickups...still looking...Dimarzio or SD, HS setup

Wilkinson tremolo(not recessed)

PRS Santana body style, arched

Vol/Tone(with coil split)/3 way
Purple string dampener scrunchy.

For yourself you could build that for way under a grand. Given you have all the tools. Personally I'd sell a guitar like that for around $800-$900. That's a lowball offer though.

Very possible if you do not include tools and labor, if he's a good luthier it's a really good deal though.

Was the builders name LPAddict? Cause his prices are normally $800-900 and the builds kick ass.
Hearing about a pair of great boobs is like hearing about a really cool bug or lizard as a kid and you just gotta see it.

Well he's here on UG so you should at least talk to him about it. He can probly give you a estimate on what you want and he gets discounts on parts so the parts will be cheaper.

sure you can get a custom for under a grand. Atomic Guitar Works USA hand made guitars start under a grand.
