Ordering a Pledger Guitar
Woods are handpicked from my collection.
The neck is carved and shaped to find the ultimate comfort for the player. The top and back are braced lightly to ensure maximum movement and resonance without compromising strength. Each brace is hand carved to allow movement and support where needed. Inlays and rosettes are all cut and set in by hand, adding aesthetics that please the eye.

DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
A $500 non refundable deposit is required to get the ball rolling. Once deposit has been received, then there is typically 4-8 month waiting period for your guitar. I will contact you once it is complete, and wait for the remainder of the balance. When that has been received, the guitar is all yours!
SHIPPING HANDLING AND INSURANCE
United States: $100
International: based on location
You will have a one week trial period once you have received the guitar. If you are unsatisfied, then you may return for a full refund, minus the non refundable deposit. Return shipping would be your responsibility. Guitar must be returned in the condition it was received. Any repairs needing to be made would be taken out of the refund.
My guitars have a limited lifetime warranty that extends through my life as an active luthier. It covers repairs of damage due to defective craftsmanship on my part and/or materials. Damage from neglect, moisture, lack of moisture, heat, abuse, and “wear & tear” can be repaired at an hourly shop rate. Having repair work done by someone other than myself runs the risk of warranty cancellation. Cost of shipping is owner’s responsibility.
