Specs/Pricing

Simple procedure for custom orders:

General questions about models and specifications can be handled through email or telephone conversations. Please be aware that the wait time for custom orders does fluctuate so please inquire. To secure a place in the schedule, a $1500.00 deposit is typically required. Upon receipt of the deposit, a detailed discussion of the instrument will take place and an order specification sheet including estimated delivery time and final balance will be mailed back. At this point work will begin on your instrument. Unless otherwise stipulated, the final balance and shipping charges are not due until completion of the order.
