This is a great way of getting a hand built custom order instrument made just for you. No charge is made for this custom order service as you simply pay for the level of specifications and woods that you are ordering. We are not aware of any other guitar builder able to offer this level of skill and craftsmanship with such a wide range of custom options at such a modestly priced level. The custom Lakewood guitars we have supplied have all been stunning one of works of musical art. We have compiled a basic guide to creating your own custom lake wood but would really encourage you to call or email us for more details and to receive a first class service and experience.
First consider body shape.
Do you want a dreadnought, a 12 fret compact size or a mid sized M shape version. Lakewood do also provide a Baritone option. By far our most popular body size would be either the Dreadnought D size or the slightly more compact M size.
Nut and Neck profile
The most popular nut sizes would be 44mm and 46mm. 46 can be a bit of a stretch for some players but anything from 43 to 50 can be ordered. It really depends on what you are used to and how much space you do or do not want on your fret board. The neck profile option allows for various different neck shapes and thickness. Please do contact us for any advice at all regarding selecting the correct neck profile and size for your individual needs.
Lakewood offer a massive range of tops and back and sides options. You may well know already exactly what you want but with so much scope for choice available if you are at all undecided please do contact us and we can discuss and describe the options that may suit you best.
The Lakewood guitar designer tool
If you go onto the Lakewood site and select the relevant flag and country you can quickly navigate to a custom shop guitar building tool called the Guitar Designer. Please do click on and launch this guitar designer tool and you will very quickly find that you can list out your ideal specifications in a visually and logical way. This really is a great tool and we highly recommend you try having a play around with it.
What happens Next
Once you have put together your ideal list of specifications we can arrange a competitive individual quote for you. We will need a deposit to place a custom order and once an order has been placed we would normally expect to only have to wait around 16 -18 weeks for the guitar to be built. You would then need to pay us the balance when the guitar is ready to ship to you or for you to collect it.
This is such an easy process and a great way to build and buy an individual high quality instrument of your very own specifications. We look forward to hearing any questions.
