Beauties from our Custom Shop!

Steampunk Ashlee

The “Steampunk” Ashlee was a brain child of Kevin Honeycutt from Hutchinson, KS. The guitar was ordered through our dealer, Johnson Music. What a fun build this was!

Ty Riggs Birdseye

When Ty asked us to build him a nice Birdseye Ashlee, we didn’t just want to pray that we got a good top. We wanted to MAKE a great top!

Barn Birdseye

When Mike Vandevelde brought us birdseye maple from a 200 year old barn, we were blown away. When we finished the guitar, he was!

Reno War Memorial

These guitars were built as a fund raiser for the Reno County War Memorial in Hutchinson, KS.

Model 1906 in True Blue

Since I’m a GSU graduate with a degree in Music Education, I wanted to build one for GSU. Our result was the 1906 model in “True Blue”! -Chris

Spalted Ashlee

Here’s a beautiful custom Spalted Maple Ashlee built for our friends at Latta Music in Alabama!

Dazzle Burst

I have to admit, I never would’ve come up with this color on my own. We had a customer in Florida that wanted purple. He asked us to call it “Dazzle Burst”. We did and we do. This one’s for you, Razzle Dazzle…

Cherry Burst with “Bennett Blocks”

This is the third custom for our friend, Steve Bennett. It’s all gold hardware and custom “Bennett Blocks” make this a sharp guitar!


We built serial #501 for our second dealer, Monster Music in Levittown New York!!

Gold Top #1

Here's our first Gold Top Built for Latta Music in Dothan Alabama

Gatlin Burst

Built custom for Mark Gatlin

Walnut Ashlee

Single Piece Top

It's rare that we have a single piece maple top. We chose to build this one out of a single piece top and back for Latta Music.

Sister for Another Mister

This is the "sister" top for the single piece top Ashlee. We could only build two out of the wood top. This was built for Terry Kirkland

Troy Taylor Custom

This was built from our friend across the pond, Troy Taylor. It features the "Bennett Block" side block pattern.

Allen Ward Custom

I really like the custom inlay we did for Allen Ward. Side note - Allen's guitar was our very first with laser inlay serial number on the headstock!

Edward Murphy Custom

This was built for Edward Murphy. A "Satin Gatlin" Very Nice!

Isaac Gaither Custom

This was built custom for Isaac Gaither

Ken Weidner Custom

This "Dirty Top" Ashlee was built for Ken Weidner

Latta Music Custom

This was built using a real American Flag. Custom for Latta Music

Chris Strane Custom

This high flame top was built custom for Chris Strane. The Infinity inlays are awesome!

Torin Torgersen Custom

Torin supplied his own gorgeous top for this build and gave us the color. We call it "Torin Burst"

RNA Custom

This color is built for RNA Music out of Canton, Texas.

Heart Pine Custom

This was a custom we built out of Heart Pine for Monster Music. We've only got enough wood to build one more from this tree.

Riley Lowery Custom

This All White Ashlee was built for Riley Lowery (our street address is named for his uncle)!

Sandbar Burst

This Ashlee was built custom for John Lloyd for Wolfe Guitars

Heape Custom

This Walnut Ashlee was built for Stephen Heape with wood that was cut down by his Grandfather!

Tom Girardeau Custom

This custom Spalted ashlee Semi-Hollow was built for Tom Girardeau. He gave me a ride to pick up my first guitar!

Shiplap Custom

This custom Ashlee was built from Oak, Maple, and Mahogany for Brandon Taylor.

#500 (Five Elements)

Latta Music ordered Serial #500 and thought about how they wanted to make it special. I'd say that it is!

John Mendez Custom

John challenged us with making a "rainbow" burst using this color pallet. He also sent me a picture of his wife's tattoo that we put on the 12th fret!

Blake Hicks Custom

Blake is a preacher and owns just about eveything we make. So when he asked us to design a tree of life for him, we knew what to do.
