Guitars
Basses
We maintain a modest inventory of quality instruments. We mainly focus on building and modifying Fender-style guitars and basses. All of our custom builds are priced for players, not collectors. What that means is that we do not inflate prices to suggested retail costs or mark up our instruments to satisfy the demands of the collector community. Our instruments are MADE to be PLAYED.  

Conducting our business online using E-Commerce allows us to offer you the best prices in town on instruments and hardware. Guaranteed!    

  
 
Guitar & Bass Hardware
We sell parts!  We are an "AllParts" dealer and carry a large inventory of "AllParts" distributed hardware. 
 
New & Used Instruments
We occasionally sell new and used stock instruments, including acoustic guitars and basses, although our inventory consists primarily of new custom builds and a few modified or upgraded instruments.
 

Custom Instruments

We offer custom builds based on customer input and offer a variety of options for hardware, body parts and finishes. Our custom builds range in price from $300.00 for a standard quality instrument to $2,500.00 for a high quality custom shop equivalent.
