Testimonials

“Great service! 
I have been impressed with the quality of the items I've received (especially the fretboards). You've been very helpful with some unusual builds (the suggestion to order a bass fretboard slotted from both ends for two short-scale necks was brilliant). I was very surprised at how quickly I received an order of custom-length truss rods. You have a very happy customer."

Side Bending

SHOPsidebendingcutaway200

BENDING SIDES / BENDING CUTAWAY SIDES
We have a tremendous amount of side bending experience. We will bend any of the woods that we offer into the shapes listed below. Allow about a week for side bending – each order is essentially custom.

Sides are sanded to 0.090" before bending.

This table shows how your sides will be tapered (straight taper) for each type of guitar shape we bend. Additional material will need to be removed (with a bandsaw or hand plane) to bring the sides to their final profile.
