As you may know I have been working with a Chinese workshop to provide stunning solid body / semis which we then strip down in the UK, fit out with the highest quality components, rebuild and setup in our workshop to perfection - Generally providing a totally bespoke, personalized guitar for £899.
Well! As you may also know my heart is in jazz/blues and have always been so interested in archtop guitars. However, like many have found the pricing so crazy it has put a stop to any investment business wise in this direction... until now.
I have teamed up with some of the most highly respected archtop guitar builders in China!
Just like with the electric guitars, you can have a personal say in the bridge used, pickup (if required), colour, woods etc.
Your unique & personalized R Custom Jazz will cost you generally no more than £1700
My first customer was about to buy a heavily overpriced Peerless Maestro for £3500 but thankfully his timing was perfect and I was able to save him £1800 and his guitar will be in another league to a Peerless.
This news is hot off the press so it will take time to see results but within the next 6-8 weeks I should be able to bring you an update with my first guitar from the workshop!

To ensure anyone can benefit from this highly personalized service we subsidize the delivery costs from our pocket - not yours, resulting in the following delivery charges*
Any delivery to Western Europe £15.
Eastern Europe £25
Every guitar is packed personally by Richard. We purchase especially strengthened outer cartons and pack each guitar in a way that guarantees the guitar will come out the box as it went in - perfect.
If you bought your guitar from an alternate source it would cost you at least £50 to have it play to the standard that we set our guitars AS standard.
Why would you want to buy from a faceless online store if you can buy from someone who values every customer and their personal needs?
I do hope we can help you further as we provide the service you wish you could find locally!
