Electric guitars custom-made
Everybody, who has played guitar for a long time, is looking for the perfect instrument. Important factors are the feel of surface, visual appearance and the right components. For me, custom-made means: You tell me your demands and wishes and I construct your instrument according to these, from the first draft to the vernier adjustment.
Tele-Style Electric Guitar (2009):
Customer requirement: Especially thick neck, tele-guitar without tele-head, noble
Realisation: chamfered maple headstock, reversed headstock for better ergonomics while tuning, drop-top rosewood soundboard on a swamp ash body and a binding made from cherry wood.
Hardware, Sound pickup and electronics: noble visual appearance through golden hardware from ABM and Schaller and as special feature Häussel pick-ups with humbucker at the bridge.
PRS- Style Electric Guitar “Black Pearl” (2010)
Customer requirement: PRS-Style, tacked maple soundboard, dark grey finish of the instrument
Realisation: Design of the headstock, hand-carved, arced maple soundboard on a mahogany body; glued mahogany neck; headstock and fingerboard, made from ebony, are bound with tacked maple wood. Special: nacre inlay, designed by the customer on the fingerboard at the 12th fret.
Hardware, sound pickup and electronics: The Schaller-Hardware in ruthenium and the splittable Häussel-humbucker with black ebony plate support the dark visual appearance of the guitar.
PRS-Style Electric guitar “RED”
Model: hand-carved, arced maple soundboard with red finish on a mahogany body, glued mahogany neck
Hardware, sound pickup, and electronics: The biggest advantage of custom-made guitars: regarding the choice of hardware, sound pickups and electronics is nearly unlimited. I recommend e.g. Schaller hardware and Häussel-pickups.
