As much as id like to have the final say on how each guitar ends up, i do have to built to client's specs.... this guitar was SUPPOSED to be just matt black with no inlays. I managed to talk the guy around into something i bit more "out there". All in all, i loved how this one turned out, and the tone (considering its EMG's) is mind blowing.

I love this guitar and I love your work. Can you put graphic designs on the body of the guitar, if asked i.e. a picture of someone?

I'd love to have a guitar made by you.

Also, a little tip. You need to get your website redesigned. In its current state, it sucks.

Good to see you found this place. I lurk abit around project guitar and have seen your work. It's really nice stuff.
But how did you do those inlays? metal flakes and epoxy? Or is it a secret?

Yeah, sweet guitar. I'm also wondering about the inlays.

totally depends on what shape, neck joint, and 'artistic inspiration', etc. If i already have a 'simular' guitar on order, i try and lump them together. Absolute longest is about 15 months, but generally on average its about nine months now.

As usual, i found it hard to part with this one when it was all finished. You just cant put so much love and effort into an instrument, and not get bonded to it. I offered the client more than his money back just so i could keep it. He didnt even hesitate in telling me where i could shove my offer

Quote for the owner:
"This is the sickest, most bull**** guitar ive EVER had my hands on, let alone owned. It ****s all over simons PRS, even he said so, and you know how much of a PRS junky he is. Simon wants to come down and chat about a custom, put your prices up!"

Yes i make basses. I have two on order currently, which will be started very soon. Both through necks, with some wild inlays. I think (not confirmed yet) one will have an optic fibre lighting system up the net

How much does a guitar like that run?


it was JUST over $3000 Australian, which is about $2250 US dollars

Delete the baritone scale (27.5") and binding, and you'll save $400ish dollars

Do you ship internationally? Or are only residents of Australia allowed to reap the benefits of your awesome service?
#35
I currently have guitars in sweden and the USA. I have orders for more which are going to the UK. I will be flying to Los Angeles in August to hand deliver 6 guitars to clients who have ordered customs. Thats service :P

Normally i just send them via courier though.

Ive had a couple people ask why im so "cheap". Well.... i dont think i am...

I dont sell any guitars to music store retailers, who demand 40% markup, or 25-30
% commission. Instantly, that means more dollars in my pocket, and more in yours.
I dont have a big budget advertising campaign like the big boys. I rely on word of mouth, and let my workmanship speak for me. When i do advertise, i make sure i get the best bang for my bucks, not just some random advert in a random location, in a magazine no-one reads. Having said that, ive only placed a hand full of adverts in magazines, Australian Guitar being the biggest.
I have a VERY small workshop. Its about the size of your average master bedroom. That means i save on rent. It really is tiny. My spray booth and my toilet are in the same room... that makes for some VERY INTERESTING times
I build new guitars AND do repairs. The repair work is what pays my bills.... but its the new guitars that give me a warm fuzzy feeling at the end of the week.
I dont have staff, so i dont have to fork out fist fulls of dollars for workers insurance, taxes, etc etc. I dont need to pay someone to stand around talking all day, i can do that myself for free


the logo on that guitar is a decal. If you want to make pro grade instruments, you need to do some research and trials. I'll tell you its a decal, im cool with that, but now you have to complete the research and find out the best types to use under different lacquers. Know what i mean???
