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.
- Hand carved, solid tops
- Solid back and sides
- Personal choice of colour and headstock template (4 or 5 to choose from)
- Personal choice of electronics and pickup
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!
