Steel String Guitars
All my steel string models with standard appointments would include a choice of Curly Maple or East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, Sitka, Engelmann, or Cedar for the top and a choice of Rosewood or Ebony for the fingerboard. Any considerations having to do with neck size, scale length, nut width, and general action set up are, of course, included. An arch top hard shell case is also included. I make several models of steel string guitars based on vintage period guitars made by Martin, Gibson, and Larson, to name a few, as well as my own inspired models.
The base price for all my guitars is $5,200.00 with the exception of Harpguitars and ukes. I require a $300.00 deposit to be on the waiting list. On the start of construction I ask for one third down, deposit can be applied to the one third down , and balance upon completion. I try to deliver your project in 4-5 months from the time I start construction. Cancellation at any time forfeits deposit.
