- Guitar Inspection
We make our custom guitars with a combination of high-quality raw materials, old-school woodworking techniques, modern machinery, and a whole lot of highly-skilled human energy.
If you have any additional requirements, please put your requirements in the “Customization Requirements” field, we would like to help you to build your own style guitar.
We do a professional setup and strictly inspect your guitar to make sure everything is in tip-top shape.
Before shipping your guitar, you will receive pictures of it via email and we will wait for you to send us your final approval.
Shipping & Delivery:
Your guitar is made to order. The building time is about 20-60 days for this guitar (30 days on average).
Customization requirements may make the building time a little bit longer.
You may contact us before placing your order to check the estimated building time with your customization requirements.
If we have semi-finished in stock, the building time might be faster.
The shipping time depends on the shipping method you choose:
Free Standard Shipping. The shipping time takes usually 15-70 days (35 days on average).
Express Shipping – costs $200. The shipping time takes usually 5-20 days (10 days on average).
We put your new instrument through the demanding 10-point inspection below:
Fit & Finish. We visually check your instrument for any scratches, dings, finish flaws, or other aesthetic imperfections. We also pay attention to the neck, bridge, tuners, and any other part of the guitar that could be a loose or incorrect fit.
Action. We set up your guitar with low action.
Buzzes. Nothing drives me nuts more than a buzz. If there’s a loose tuner bushing, rattling truss rod, or any other similar symptom, we’ll find it & fix it.
Neck & Frets. We inspect the neck angle so that your guitar has the appropriate amount of saddle height and a good break angle. If there are any loose or high frets, we will address this problem too.
Relief. Along with the action, neck relief can really make a difference in a guitar’s playability. Too little and you can get fret buzz & poor volume. Too much, and your guitar can be uncomfortable, especially in the middle of the neck.
Intonation. Your new guitar should play in tune all the way up the neck. We inspect and adjust the intonation to ensure that you don’t have any tuning problems higher up, with and without a capo.
Electronics. If your guitar comes with a pickup system, we will test it before it ships. Poor sound, uneven string balance, and just plain component failure are all checked & corrected so you don’t have to fool around with it.
Strings. We guarantee your guitar will ship with a fresh set of the factory recommended strings on it.
Case integrity. Every once in a while we might find a guitar case with a bad latch or other imperfection. It’s our job to correct the bad case.
Test drive! After we complete the above tasks, it’s our duty to play your guitar. There’s just no substitute. your guitar must be played to ensure that everything is in tip-top shape.
