How it works...

I began this journey trying to make the best guitars possible, using as much recycled, waste or ethical sourced timber as I could find for the best price I could supply. Sadly Im finding less and less recyclable timber and having to use more and more ethically sourced. Still, I am very much the Anti-Custom Shop Custom Shop! I believe top quality, unique, hand made guitars should be available to all to just to the extremely wealthy or people prepared to sell a kidney!

All Guitars are made to order. How it works...
