STEEL STRINGS

  

All my guitars are handmade with high quality materials.

All the guitars are dated, signed and numbered.

Below you will find the options included in the base package and some of the available upgrades. 

If there are any specific customisations you would like which you don't see below, please contact us to discuss further.

A 400£ deposit (non refundable) is required to commission an instrument and secure the current price.

 

 

The base price is £2700

 

I use top quality European spruce and red cedar. A wide variety of tonewoods are available for the back and sides, the most known and used are rosewoods, maple, mahogany, ziricote, walnut but others can be used as well.

I now also offer guitars made without using any tropical hardwoods or just in some parts, like fretboard, please enquire.

 All my steel strings can be finished with oil but other options are available such as lacquer or Hybrid finish (shellac top, back & sides and neck lacquer).

 

In some occasions I may have guitars available for sale, non commission guitars that use to festival shows so please contact to ask about it.

 

Steel Strings Acoustic Guitar are as my other guitars are made by hand with high quality woods.
