I make electric guitars! And basses, ukuleles, twangers, and twiddlers! And they are sweet!

Want one? I'll build you one!

Price? Depends on what you want, but the base price is $300.

The 12-string made from salvaged purpleheart (pictured) $600.

If you ever need custom pickups for electric guitars you can mooseage me; hubs winds custom pickups. We also have a small stock of vintage, used pickups for sale, he's been downsizing, but does still have some available. His website is horribly dated (he says when I retire I can make it "modern" but here you go: https://skguitar.com/). He has info on the site for tutorials on guitar fixes/upgrades that might be useful. Love the guitars you are building!

Well, I'll say up front that I can't afford anything right now. But, if you can build my dream instrument, in the future... I'll save up for it if it is along the lines of what you've already quoted.  I play jazz and country, and several instruments.  I'm partial to guitar type 4th tunings and tenor/mandolin type 5th tunings.  I also love old Mosberg double neck designs.  My dream instrument is a telecaster style double neck.... 7 string (Van Eps style) guitar neck on the bottom, with a Bigsby style tremolo... and a 5ths tuned, 4 sting tenor neck on top.... tele style lipstick pickups.. for each and something twangy on the guitar bridge.  Obviously, there are a few engineering challenges... looking for a very jazzy tone... Ted Green and Joe Maphis.
 
We can walk to school together. And we can both read this tiny ad:
