PICKUPS

One of the biggest contributors to the sound of your guitar is the pickups - our preferred pickup brand is Monty’s, although there are a multitude of great pickup builders doing excellent work out there.

BODY

Choosing the right wood for your body and neck can heavily shape not only the tone, but also the feel and look of your instrument. There are plenty of comprehensive guides online, such as this one.

NECK

The neck is where most of your interaction with your instrument happens, and each of our necks is hand carved, shaped and sanded to your preference. We love to take the finish on the back of the neck down for a super smooth, fast playing guitar.

FRETBOARD

We often use ebony boards, and hold a stock of exotic ebony if you’d like a unique grain pattern on your board. Rosewood is also a great choice for a classic, softer feel. Fingerboard and fret ends will be rolled and rounded for a vintage, unhindered playing feel. Our preferred fretwire is Evo Gold, which falls somewhere between nickel and stainless steel in terms of hardness. We love the feel and look of it. Lots of info on fret materials here
