Custom Guitars

Building a custom instrument is something I enjoy immensely and also take very seriously. Here are just a few of the guitars I've had the honour of building for my clients. Drop me a line, I'd love to hear some of the ideas you have for your own custom instrument.

Custom Weissenborn-style acoustic

 

About 10 years ago I was lucky enough to find a huge, thick piece of Dracontamelon Papua New Guinea Walnut leaning on the side of a barn. I bought it up, meaning to use it for  some harp guitars, but instead I'll be making two gorgeous Weissenborn style acoustic guitars to order.

The owner bought a hand tooled leather guard from the States, so I fitted it up for her. Looks neat! Custom, electric, made-to-order, flamed maple, alder, rosewood, natural finish, Salvi's Fine Guitars

Modern bolt on. It just makes more sense, but if you'd like a traditional plate that's cool too. Custom, electric, made-to-order, flamed maple, alder, rosewood, natural finish, Salvi's Fine Guitars

A nice simple look

 

A subtle look here. Beautiful flamed maple cap on an Alder body. We started off with no guard, with a Rosewood fingerboard. A special order for the singer in my band.

In the end, she decided on a hand tooled leather guard. Looks neat!

Seems happy with the guitar!

Xtreme Carve Top

 

A twist on an Ozzie classic.

The client wanted a Maton Style electric guitar. The result is this carve top beauty, solid Mahogany with carbon fibre inserts in the neck, an Ebony fingerboard with 2 octave neck a tail piece and 2 TV Jones pickups. 

 

Sick!
