At WR Custom Guitars there are two approaches to what I consider to be a custom instrument. First, there are those guitars that I’m building on an ongoing basis that fall outside of the W.R Standard Series. This can range from a Grand Performance Cutaway with an Engelmann Spruce top, special marquetry, and a Fishman Preamp, to a Dreadnought with Herringbone Perfling and wood bindings.

The second approach is that in which a customer has a specific build in mind with a number of special items they’re looking for. Again, the problem for many customers comes down to the bottom line: how much will this cost me? Many custom shops take this out of the reach of most people. Here at WR Custom Guitars, prices are set to be affordable–without cutting quality. There are always a number of guitars in the shop built and ready for you to add your personal touch. You pick your own level of marquetry and finish.

If I can help you in any way, or answer any questions you may have on a custom build, feel free to call.

Thank you for visiting WR Custom Guitars.
