Hand Made Guitar's
I found a guy that builds guitars, he is retired, and does it just as a hobby. He hand draws all the designs. He's got some pretty unique and crazy designs. He puts p-90 humbucker's in them. The body is either Mahogany, Ash or Maple. Tele style neck and head.
By no means are they top tier 2 -5K hand made guitars, but...I didn't think I'd ever be able to afford a hand made guitar. He sells them for the cost of materials,(Usually $200.00!!, give or take) and $65.00 shipping to the lower 48 states.
This is a pic of the one he is working on for me. I wanted it as a semi hollow body, but he doesn't do those. I'm having the body made out of Mahogany with a walnut stain, the sample furthest right. With a cream colored binding.
Anyway, if you are interested in a handmade guitar and don't want to break the bank, maybe this is an option for you as well. Let me know and I'll put ya in contact with him.
