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.
My build schedule is booked in the order of deposits received (typically $750 -- which covers the basic material costs for most builds). Deposit is refundable up to the time your build is started.
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 for my construction process.
I would love to talk with you about building that dream instrument!
