Making one of a kind instruments is a rewarding aspect of my work.  Collaborating on design & creativity with the client is a fun and interesting process and yields unique and personal instruments that the players really love.

A custom instrument is what ever you want or need it to be, you may just require a simple change or two of materials, or a particular neck width and thickness.  On the other hand you may want an instrument that has rare woods & unique features throughout.  Either way, you get to choose what your guitar becomes.

Types of guitars

I make a broader selection of instruments on a custom basis including steel string guitars and acoustic lap steel instruments.


Prices typically range from $7,000-12,000 AUD depending on the degree of design changes and materials choice and hardware upgrades.

Basic changes to standard models are available, such as string length and fingerboard width changes & do not effect the price of the instrument, however they will need to be made to order and a wait of around 3 months would be involved.
