Custom Archtop Specification Options

As a custom maker, I can build any of my models to a client's chosen specification. Check out the options…
Woods:
Neck: Mahogany or Maple
Fingerboard: Indian Rosewood or Ebony
Body: Quilted or Flame Maple
Body Facing: Spruce or Cedar
Fingerboard Radius:

Single radius:
225mm (9"),
250mm (10") or
300mm (12").
Compound radius:
250mm to 350mm
(10" to 14")
or 300mm to 400mm
(12" to 16")
Scale Length:
22 or 24 frets at 628mm (24¾"),
635mm (25") or
648mm (25½").

Fret Size:
Dunlop 6100 (wide and tall) or
Dunlop 6105 (narrow and tall).

Neck Dimensions:
Standard size:
Nut width: 43mm (1.11/16"),
width at fret 22: 58mm (2.9/32").

The profile of my standard neck is best described as the nicest '59 Les Paul you laid your hands on!

It has a depth at the 1st fret of 22mm (7/8"), at the 12th fret it's 24mm (15/16").

Optional neck depths are 21mm or 23mm at 1st fret to 23mm or 25mm at 12th fret.

Fingerboard Inlays:
If standard 6mm Mother-of-Pearl dots or small offset blocks don't take your fancy, then let's chat about it! Don't forget, all my inlays are done by hand, not computer - they take a great deal of time and can therefore add a lot to the price of your guitar.

Hardware:
All guitars are adaptable to receive standard or locking tuners

Pickups:
My favourite pickups are Seymour Duncan, DiMarzio, Tom Holmes and Harmonic Design. However, I'll fit anything you want.

Electrics:
Each guitar has standard placement for the pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls but various wiring options (custom coil-splits etc.) are available, depending on pickups chosen.
