Latest project: Phil's "Blackie"

Build your dream guitar!
I can help you design a great sounding, functioning, and looking guitar.
I like combining a vintage look with the best modern features but can build what you want.
Choose from Warmoth, USA Customs, All Parts, and many others, necks and bodies.
Select from all of the hardware, pickups, and electronics I offer.
Or bring in your own components and I can assemble them for you.
Assembly includes level and crowning, properly cut nut, set-up to your liking, and high quality soldering and sheilding with copper tape.
Finishes from Orion or the manufacturer, in nitro cellulose and acrylic lacquer or poly.
I can meet many price points starting at $899.
