So I'm thinking about looking into my next purchase music-wise to be a custom made electric. I haven't looked into it much, I just wanted to know if anyone had any opinions/justifications for one side or the other.

Its a nice idea but have a look round and see if there is a guitar about that has the same specs as you'd like on a custom because customs can be extremely expensive due to being a custom.

^ Word.

This being said however, I think the best option for getting something custom is Carvin. Their prices are pretty low IMHO, and they do offer a lot of custom options.

look into Carvin. Excellent options for not a bad price (very high end models around 2000$) and you choose everything.

EDIT: Dammit.

Customs are wonderful, but be prepared to pay the price. I mean like, upper thousands, here. But, it's a guitar made to your EXACT specifications. So, I guess it just comes down to which is more important at this moment in time? Cash, or your perfect guitar? But be sure you know exactly what you want, before you go through with it.


EDIT: I totally forgot about Carvin's stuff. Check them out, too, like the others said.

Check Warmoth . I checked out how much it would be to get all the parts myself, and build a modest custom-it was around $1500-1800, which is reasonable for a guitar, I think.

Also be aware that unlike a really expensive production guitar, an expensive custom doesn't usually have a good resale value.

They're good if you know exactly what you want and can't find it on any production guitar, but it'll cost you.
