Playing a Contour 66 that was finished a few weeks ago right now actually. Best guitar I've ever played, save for the 1960 ES125 my guitar teacher has right now and the '59 Burst the economy dying made him sell.

King Bee makes good Fender-style guitars.

Get a copy of Premier Guitar magazine and look at all of the advertisements in the last twenty or so pages. You'll find more custom builders there than you ever imagined. The majority of them are very good.

There's Oni Guitars in Australia, he specialises in extended range instruments and I'm pretty sure he'll ship internationally.

This doesn't mean Carvin makes bad guitars, it means Suhr, Tyler and anderson make unbelievably good guitars.

Every brand on the market has a custom shop, it all depends on how much you're willing to spend. For the money, you would be able to find a luthier who could build you something 10x better than anything a big name shop could
