Orders placed after November 1st will not begin construction until after the Holidays, so that I can direct full attention to completing currently pending orders.

Orders received between now and November 1st cannot be promised for pre Christmas delivery, but I’ll try.

I invite you to continue to order, and some guitars may be completed prior to the holidays, but those currently pending will receive priority.

And If I get buried under a mountain of sawdust, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

And thanks for a great year.

-Ron Kirn

Detailed photo journal on exactly how I build em.


What goes into my "basic" T?



elcome. I’m Ron Kirn, and I build custom guitars. My philosophy as I build them is, since they are custom, I let you choose what components you would like. It’s that simple.

I do things differently. For instance, if you have a favorite neck, pickups or whatever, I will gladly incorporate it into your new guitar. Or you may choose the components from which your guitar is created off an extensive list of components. Many made by the same exact manufacturers supplying the large guitar manufacturers.

For pricing, I don’t bury it somewhere obscure. A Tele type starts at $1750 and a Strat type starts at $1950. The final price depends on the choices you make, but rest assured, the difference in quality rests only in the components chosen. Close your eyes and you cannot tell the difference between the least expensive and a more exotic guitar.

Please read the details on exactly how I build 'em and why, peruse through the photos of others I have created, then let me know what I can do for you.
