For the first 10 years or so, the shop was just a few minutes outside of Shelton Washington, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Now, it is located in South Texas. To be more specific, the shop is actually Scott's garage and is stuffed full of wood-working equipment, benches, tools, and various guitar parts and supplies.

Being such a small operation helps to keep costs down. Since it isn't a 10,000 square foot shop full of $20,000 CNC machines, you are assured a great guitar at an honest price. No assembly line, corporate style guitars here.

Prices tend to run $1200-$1500 for a bolt on guitar, $1500-$2000 for a neck through, $1500-$2000 for a carved bolt on, and $2000-$2500 for a carved neck through.

We buy our parts in bulk or at dealer prices so we can offer a custom made guitar at an affordable price. We have OEM status with Seymour Duncan, EMG, Floyd Rose, and Hipshot to name a few. If a customer would like something other than those, we will install the requested components at cost. No extra charge. No gouging. We're just making a living building guitars, we ain't getting rich.

I bought my first guitar at 16 and started playing professionally at 21. From the beginning, I was always modifying and hot-rodding my guitars to make them look cooler and play better. Now in my 40s, I have graduated to making the instruments I could only dream of when first starting out.

Part of my drive comes from remembering what it was like to want a really cool looking guitar, but only having enough coin to afford hock shop crap. Inevitably, I ended up with substandard guitars, but with my interest in art, I was able to make the instruments look great. I still own my first guitar, but it would be totally unrecognizable by any former owner.

After playing and tweaking guitars for years, I started building them in my 30s. Now, in my 40s, I wish I had started in my 20s. I love it. I've toured all over playing live music. Building a guitar is the only thing that comes close to that feeling. I guess, in a way, I get to live vicariously through the instruments I create.

Scott is not only an accomplished luthier and musician, but he is quite an artist too. He often does logo designs and other needed artworks for customers' bands.

Over the years he has done murals, portraits, signage, advertising, and computer graphics. Here are a few examples of some of the computer generated graphics he has done
