Prices & Ordering

Prices for instruments are, I believe, very reasonable, but vary according to the woods and hardware chosen. I dont really do fancy inlay work, or use incredibly rare and outrageously expensive woods, which is often what bumps the price up significantly... Please refer to the relevant instrument pages for more specs & options, but as a guide:

Electric guitars start at £950 - non-cutaway African mahogany (khaya) body; no binding; bolt-on maple or khaya neck; granadillo or katalox fingerboard; single P90 pickup (neck or bridge position); floating wood bridge; Grover Sta-tite tuners

Steel guitars start at £500 - maple or mahogany solid body with Tru-oil finish; no binding; Golden Age lipstick or P90 pickup; aluminium nut & bridge/tailpiece; Golden Age tuners

Mandolins start at around £1000 for an oval hole Venetian model - spruce top; plain or lightly figured maple body & neck; granadillo fingerboard; plastic binding; Gotoh tuners

Ukuleles start at £450 for a soprano with minimal decoration - either all khaya (African mahogany), or the same but with a cedar top; plastic binding (top, back & soundhole); granadillo bridge & fingerboard; Waverly friction tuners

Acoustic guitars (both steel and nylon strung) start at around £1050 for a parlour sized instrument (300mm lower bout) - either all African mahogany (steel string) or mahogany/maple with a western red cedar top (steel or nylon); plastic binding (top, back & soundhole); granadillo or katalox bridge & fingerboard; Grover Sta-tite or Golden Age 3-on-a-plate tuners

Zithers start at £175 for a 5 string Finnish kantele in lime and poplar, and £200 for a 5 string epinette in either spruce and mahogany or lime and poplar - these are available to order from my Etsy shop here

No extra charge for left handed instruments - you'll only pay more if a part costs me significantly more to supply (e.g. Bigsby vibratos)

To order, please use the form on the contact page with an idea of the kind of instrument you want and I'll send you a price list with the available options. A 30% deposit wil get you on the build list, with the balance paid on completion of the instrument


Current build time is 8-12 weeks for standard models, longer for custom orders - depending on complexity

I will occasionally have instruments built 'on spec'; these will be for sale on and/or advertised in the Instruments section here and on Facebook

If you are looking for something a little more bespoke, email me with your idea, I'll tell you if i think I can build it, and we can take it from there...
