ORDERING A PLEDGER GUITAR
If you're looking for a new guitar, please take a look at my Available Guitars Page. There you will find guitars that are available today, and are usually marked down a bit from my custom-built guitar prices. If you don't see what you're looking for there, you can design what you want off of this page. My current base price is below, along with a list of woods, materials, and details included/available in a base model. Additional details, materials, and woods are available and listed under Custom Guitar Extras. Once you have an idea of what you need, please email me through my Contact Page for a quote and to begin the design process.

If you're interested in seeing a more detailed list of possible extras, with current pricing, please email me and I will send it your way. Once you look it over and have your design figured out, we can then discuss what you've come up with, and I can give a final quote. As soon as I receive your deposit, you are on the build list.
SHIPPING HANDLING AND INSURANCE
United States: $150
International: based on location
DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT
To create a custom order, a $500 non-refundable deposit is required to get the ball rolling and start the design process. Once deposit has been received, and the design is figured out, then there is typically 6-12 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!
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 deposit, or I can build you another guitar that is closer to what you might need. This option might adjust the original price up or down. All 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 all shipping is owner’s responsibility.
