Custom Guitars

Handcrafted guitars to rock your world

Every custom-made guitar that we construct has its own unique tone. Austin handcrafts each guitar from start-to-finish; the result is a one-man guitar – no mass production lines here.

The wood binding process adds a natural beauty to the guitar that plastic cannot offer while making better glue joints. Solid wood is superior in tone compared to the laminates. By scalloping the braces, this causes the top to vibrate more freely, producing a richer tone.
