Since I am primarily a custom instrument builder, each build can be set up to use the materials and specs which will optimize your player experience.
Usually the new-build process starts with a consultation discussion (in person, on the phone, or via e-mail). Together we will create a list of your needs and priorities, which will drive the specifications for your instrument build. Using this information I will create a detailed Spec Sheet which will be used as both a tool for us to discuss your instrument build and a roadmap for my construction process.
My build schedule is booked in the order of deposits received (typically $1000 -- which covers the basic material costs for most builds). Your deposit is refundable up to the time your build is started.
I would love to talk with you about building that dream instrument!
