The process

The process is simple, yet detailed. As a customer you can simply approach us through social media, email or telephone and we will walk you through the whole process of custom ordering. Some brands, even make it more easy by offering the possibility to configure your dream builds through their website. As you can also see in the video above here. You can look into all the possibilities and make a selection of specifications you love to have. Now of course, you might have questions during the selection process, and that’s where we come in! Want to know which specs work well together? Or would you like to know more about tone woods and don’t know where to start? Don’t worry my friends. We are here to help you make the right decisions.

When your dream guitar has come together on the mental drawing board, we will then move forward by contacting our suppliers and make sure the order will be put in the right and official way. After that, we will most likely send you one last email to doublecheck everything together, so we just know that there is no mixup or errors. When the custom order is 100% correct, we will then send you the invoice and we can place the order and walk-through the downpayment.

How much does a custom guitar cost?

Every brand has their own way of pricing. Which of course is logical because all brands might just have different ways of building their instruments. Usually with custom orders most of the guitar is handbuilt, and therefore you will receive a very unique instrument where a lot of time has gone into perfection and eye for detail. Just the way it should be! With most brands, you will see that most starting prices will be around €3000,- and it can only go up from there. So if you really want to go nuts by picking very exotic and unique woods for example chances are, you’ll have a more expensive taste. If you’re not sure what a set of specs you came up with will cost, just feel free to send us a message and we’ll help you every step of the way.

I cannot find the right words to say how amazing my experience with Zjon is. The guitar was immaculate, packaging the best I have ever seen, service super smooth and quick. Guitar arrived within a week, and my package was filled with nice little surprises like personalized note, photos of the guitar and also waffles hehe. I usually shop for a guitar by first choosing the guitar and then the store, but I think going forward I will just check whats available at Zjon's first. Thank you so much!!

More about custom guitars

What is a Custom Guitar?

A custom guitar is an instrument that is built to the specific specifications of the customer. This can include everything from the type of wood used, to the inlay work, to the overall shape and size of the guitar. Custom guitars can be built from scratch, or they can be modified versions of existing models.

Why Would Someone Want a Custom Guitar?

There are a few reasons why someone might want a custom guitar. Maybe they’re a professional musician who needs an instrument that is specifically tailored to their playing style. Or maybe they’re a hobbyist who just wants an instrument that looks and sounds exactly the way they want it to. Whatever the reason, custom guitars offer a level of customization that you just can’t find with mass-produced models.

How Are Custom Guitars Made?

The process of making a custom guitar can vary depending on the builder and the specific specifications of the guitar. But in general, the process usually starts with the customer choosing the type of wood they want the guitar to be made from. The builder will then cut the wood to the desired shape and size, and begin assembling the guitar. The next step is to add the hardware, which includes the tuning keys, bridge, and pickups. Once the hardware is in place, the builder will add the finishing touches, such as the paint job, inlay work, and final assembly.

Finally, the guitar is ready to be played.What Are the Different Types of Customizations?There are endless possibilities when it comes to customizing a guitar. But some of the most popular customizations include the following:Changing the body shape or sizeAdding custom inlays or graphics.

Modifying the pickups or electronics

Installing a kill switch or other special features or adding a custom finish or paint job. These are just a few of the many ways that a guitar can be customized. So if you can dream it, we can make it happen.

How Do I Care for My Custom Guitar?

Caring for a custom guitar is similar to caring for any other type of guitar. The most important thing is to keep it clean and dry, and to avoid exposing it to extreme temperatures or humidity. You should also avoid exposing the guitar to direct sunlight, as this can fade the finish over time.When not in use, the best way to store a guitar is in a hard case, which will protect it from damage. If you don’t have a hard case, you can also use a soft case, but be sure to wrap the guitar in a cloth or blanket to protect it from scratches.ConclusionCustom guitars are amazing instruments that are built to last. If you’re lucky enough to own one, be sure to take care of it and it will last you a lifetime.
