Current custom creations vs commissioned orders
As I make each new bass guitar in my shop thinking, I like thinking about the musician who will ultimately bring it to life.
I believe each of my creations just needs to find it's proper home, so if you are looking to buy a handcrafted, one of a kind instrument, please contact me to discuss my current inventory.
If I don't have anything on hand that strikes your face, I am happy to talk to you about creating a custom instrument with the wood selection, add-ons, size, etc. that you would like. This is considered an advanced order.
Once we decide to work together, we will have a thorough consultation to plan out your bass guitar.
You will be sent a contract that describes the work that will be completed, the total cost and estimated completion date (6 months after deposit.)
At the time of the contract, a deposit will be required in order to start the work.
Progress reports and photos will be provided along the way.
For both custom creations and advanced orders, your custom guitar will be shipped to you in a gig bag upon completion.
