Where can you find one of these/have one custom built?
Also any ideas on price?

Black and white one is extremely nice.

#2
Depends on what kinda budget. I'm sure the Fender Custom Shop would do it. (If you wanted to pay an arm and a leg)
Fender Telecaster
Squier Jazzmaster
Fender Deluxe Stratocaster
Hagstrom F-301
Epiphone Dot

Big Muff Pi
Small Clone
MXR Phase 90
Dunlop CFH
Crate V33H>Bugera2x12

Few hundred pounds ?
Heard about some people spending £6000 on one and then others about £400...
#6
thanks
that price for the top one is very good, shame about the design, very fixed on that black and white design

also an alternative question, what other hybrids are there?
#7
The body style is easy enough to find, and the Bill Kirchen-style control setup is a minor mod.

I'd think the trick is finding something with the hidden neck & middle position pickups. I don't know how easy finding pickups for that would be.

Honestly, just trawl the Internet- there are lots of interesting designs being tried out. If you're looking for something "different" and have a price range in mind, let us know...

OK, we have a budget.

What are you planning on playing? What kind of aesthetics do you want?

Uh, I'll say lo-fi as that's broad.
I like stuff like DIIV, Beach Fossils, The Drums, Girls etc.

I'm more set on the design than anything, this telemaster seems perfect but annoying to obtain. DC59 does a fine job rn of emulating a sound I like.

Not all of these are under £500. Some might not be available in the UK.

The Xaviere JT is the cheapest I can think of.

Or buy a Squier Jaguar/Jazzmaster and do a custom pickup cover, bridge, electronics
2002 PRS CE22
2013 G&L ASAT Deluxe
2009 Epiphone G-400 (SH-4)
Marshall JCM2000 DSL100
Krank 1980 Jr 20watt
Krank Rev 4x12 (eminence V12)
GFS Greenie/Digitech Bad Monkey
Morley Bad Horsie 2
MXR Smart Gate

Warmoth does them now. They've actually had to re-arranged their Jazzmaster body page to accommodate the routing options.

BIG thanks to danny but having looked through none of them really compare, think this is the only one I want.
I personally have no idea about custom making guitars, so I guess I'll contact the fender custom shop and see what price it comes to, if not, maybe I'll have to give up.

Anyways thank you guys.
#20
A custom guitar in the USA can be had for just over $1000. In the UK, I've seen builders that started around £1000.

Near as I can tell, the only real trick to this build is the hidden middle & neck position pickups. (I don't know if you need special pickups or what have you.)

If that element is crucial to your desires, that may not be possible without going to Fender. If it isn't, you should be able to shop around.

Diiver, do you even want the hidden pick ups? because that's about as easy a guitar to put together from parts as there is otherwise.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
#22
ideally i'd want that exact one (black and white) in the original post

however if that means it's too expensive or hard to obtain then i'd be happy for alternatives

Builders & repair techs: Would mounting a high-output pickup very low in the body work?

Talk to this guy: http://vintagevibeguitars.com/index.html

His pickups are essentially custom wounds, and if anyone could make the invisible pickups, he'd be on my short list. Especially since he also supplies pickguards.

He might even be able to do them as a Pre-wired assembly...

sorry for not replying, thanks though guys

can someone explain the custom making part to me? because i assume you're saying that's my only real choice, i've never read up on it or anything, do you simply request them to make it or do you have to provide parts?

Option #1: do it yourself. If you have the time, tools & talent you can make wht you want. I mean either from scratch, from a kit, or, as some put it, by making a "partscaster"- a guitar project made by buying all the parts you like (whether they normally go together or not) and fitting them together.

Option #2: go to a professional luthier. These guys do all the work, and do it right. The result is a high quality guitar. However, the more unique you make it, the more it will cost. Most luthiers in the USA have prices that start at $1000-1500 for a standard model, and $2000+ for custom work. Some start higher. Overseas, prices are higher. I've only seen one UK luthier willing to make a guitar under £1000, and it was one particular £700 model. European & Japanese luthiers lie somewhere in-between for starting prices.

The thing is, sometimes what you get from a luthier is better than you'd expect. A $2500 guitar from Fender's custom shop might be outshined by a similarly priced guitar from a US luthier.
