This is about my fifth list of specifications for my dream custom electric guitar. It has been costed (including options) in early 2014.
After doing some serious online research and trying to come up with my own specifications and justifications for buying a custom guitar, I found that time has come to share my thoughts about the things to consider when buying a custom luthier guitar.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a custom guitar builder build custom guitars just for you? I am not talking about buying a guitar from the ‘custom’ shop of a major manufacturer. I think we all agree that these guitars are no more custom than any other that is being sold with standard specifications listed on a website.
Ok, you want to get a new axe in the style of you guitar hero. You came across that great online offer that is simply too good to ignore. It looks amazing. It is very, very affordable. You can have it sent to your door for free. What are you waiting for? Phew, I am so glad you waited. This was most likely the best ever decision so far in your entire guitar playing career. Let me tell you why.
Over the last 5 years I have bought and sold over 100 guitars for my private collection. Most of these transactions have been done over the internet. From my experience I can say that it is fairly safe to buy guitars online. All but one of my orders were fulfilled as advertised and I was always happy with my purchases.
