Term's and conditions

Please understand with our Guitar building classes we have a deadline to have your guitar working by 6:30pm.

We understand some people work faster than others and some people will need more attention than others. We are fully trained luthiers and are there to support you all the time.

We give very clear instructions when drilling holes and when using a soldering iron. You use all the tools at your own risk. You are totaly responsible for your own guitar.

What you are paying for! 

You will have a hand built custom guitar of your own choice.

Much more love and care will go in to your hand built guitar, unlike buying a custom guitar from a shop where it has been mass produced on a daily basis on a big scale with no real setup.

We come to you and supply all tools and equipment. 

The guitar will be setup to suit your playing type and to the gauge of string you feel most comfortable with.

You get a fully trained Luthier for the day.

No need to do months in a guitar college to learn guitar building and full setup's.
