~ Ordering ~
To commission a guitar, contact me to discuss what you
would like to order. After we work out all the details, send me a
non-refundable deposit of $650 to reserve your place on my commission list.* I will send you an itemized list of all the details we agreed on, including any extra options you selected and price quote that we discussed. The rest of the first half of the total price is due when construction begins and the balance is due upon completion and before delivery. Once construction begins, your instrument will generally be ready in one month although it may take longer, depending on many factors -e.g. attending guitar festivals.
Prices do not include packing and shipping. I use 1 or 2 day U.S.P.S. in the continental U.S. with insurance. International shipping is available and may have additional costs.
*As of May, 2017 the waiting time is about 14 months. I build about one extra guitar to sell for every two guitars that are commissioned. So check with me and I may already have -or will have soon- what you are looking for.
For pricing please call or email.
Note: I provide student discounts for guitar majors and music composition majors.
I look forward to building you a beautiful instrument that will delight you for many years to come.
Now you can pay with your credit or debit card through Paypal.
