Custom Builds
We use Vintage Color Charts from Fender and Gibson as well as Custom colors.  You can build the guitar of your dreams starting out with your choice of Body Woods (Swamp Ash, Alder, Mahogany, etc) Necks and Pickups. 

Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish: 
Applying a nitrocellulose finish to any guitar is one of the most labor-intensive elements of the guitar-making process.  A properly applied nitro finish requires extensive man hours, several evenly applied coats, and an exorbitant amount of drying time.  But this fact has never swayed us into changing this time-tested method.  Why? For starters, a nitro finish dries to a much thinner coat than a polyurethane finish, which means there is less interference with the natural vibration of the instrument, allowing for a purer tone.  A nitro finish is also a softer finish, which makes it easily repairable.  You can touch up a scratch or ding on a nitro finish, but you can’t do the same on a poly finish.  In addition, a nitro finish is very porous in nature, and actually gets thinner over time.  It does not “seal” wood in an airtight shell—as a poly finish does—and allows the wood to breathe and age properly.
