Custom electric guitars and mandolins for the building.

Okay guys, I am starting an official thread to announce that I am actually starting a production run of guitars. Electric neckthroughs. Cost will be approximately $600 for an LP Jr style, full featured guitar. Parts and requirements will of course vary the price. A barebones basic model might be doable for $300.

If there is interest, let me know. I have generated some local preorders, so... I am starting this things.

Default woods will be mahogany or limba. and ebony fretboards, but really, the sky is the limit. If a mod has a problem with me posting this, let me know...

Would you consider partial builds? As in, finished neck/body but leaving off basically all the parts/electronics?

yeah, but I would need the bridge installed likely, so I could finish the finish. (At least the posts, to prevent install from cracking the nitro.)

Or I could put in what you want electronics wise.

I wish I had the money to order one. I don't have an LP-style guitar right now.

I don't plan on this being a one time deal.

Fair enough. I'll definitely keep that in mind next time I'm GASing for a new guitar.

Hmm...I may be interested depending upon my situation as well as what you're offering at the time. I imagine within six months to a year I may be looking at one if that helps to give you a time frame.

I am also interested in a mandolin.
How cheap would a bare bone mandolin be?

emandolins are cheaper, but a simple a style accoustic would be doable as well.

Accoustic mandolins would probably be around 350 for a simple one. I could probably do an emandolin for 250. Prices will rise some as this takes off. I am starting out just barely covering parts.

If I can scrape some money together some day...... then I might be interested. But as of now, I'm broke. Lame.

When our amps are ready for production we might be able to make a deal... I'll knock the price of an emando off the amp... maybe a little more...
