A deposit of $250 (U.S dollars, non-refundable) is due at time of the initial agreement/order.
This will hold your place in the build schedule, and offers the advantage of fixing the agreed basic model price at that point
in time. The model and preliminary list of desired features will be written up at this time, and an estimate of cost provided.
An additional $500 is due at time of initiation of build. At that time, the customer will
receive a specific, line-item order summary (quotation) which will detail the elements of the instrument desired and specific
costs. The actual build will not begin until the final approval of the guitar feature list and actual receipt of the initiation
of build fee. The additional cost of custom features will be added to the standard price and communicated
to the customer at the time of initiation of build. Although the base price will already be fixed at the time of the customer
deposit, there maybe changes in the final price (customized features), based on additions by the customer or significant changes
in market prices of materials (e.g. Brazilian Rosewood, etc). Any such fluctuations in the costs will be
provided in a revised written quote provided to the customer and requiring customer written approval prior to starting the
build. This final approved quote will not change, unless additional features (that cost us more) are requested and added by
the customer and mutually agreed to, subsequent to the build start date.
balance of the quote is due at time of completion of guitar and prior to shipping.
