Waiting time

I build about 8 guitars a year, so usually I have a waiting list. Please ask me in e-mail about actual waiting time and available guitars.

Prices

My guitars' prices are between 5000-7000 EUR, depending on design and wood species, and include a hard shell case and 1 year warranty.
Within EU there are no additional taxes or fees. Outside EU please look after your country's local rules and taxes.

Ordering and payment

After discussing all the details of your new guitar in e-mail I will send you the order confirmation document and the invoice for the deposit, and ask you to confirm your order with a 1000 EUR deposit, that can be made by bank transfer. This places you on my waiting list and preparing your new instrument can be started soon. Once your guitar is finished and ready for shipping, I will send you close photos of your new guitar, and the invoice of the balance. So the rest of the guitar's price plus shipping costs will be paid at this point, before shipping.

Special requests

If you have any special ideas or questions please feel free to contact me. Left hand guitars can be ordered as well.

CITES documents

CITES restrictions on Rosewood (Dalbergia) family were accepted by 2nd of January 2017. Within EU there is no need to make any paperwork, but for customers outside the European Union a CITES export permission will be needed for the guitar. This means additional paperwork and costs somewhere between 50-100 Euro.
I plan to use more "CITES free" woods in the future. One of my favourites is Santos Rosewood (Pao Ferro), which is not on the CITES list. Tonally it's maybe superior to Indian Rosewood, I think, and also very beautiful, just heavier and harder to work with. American Walnut is also a fantastic wood and seems to be also a good choice to keep the original colour and feel of the Indian Rosewood guitars.

Good news for Canadian customers that CETA was agreed in 2017, but the conditions are still not clear and need time to take full effect.
