I don't do the typical custom orders the way other luthiers do. I am happy to discuss what you like and would want in broad parameters and we can come up with a cost for that instrument, and I will build an instrument to those parameters NO cost to you. You can then try the instrument and if you like it pay our agreed upon cost. This allows me to enjoy the building process and allows you to try a custom instrument at zero risk to you.
You would have to pay the cost of the instrument before it was shipped to you but you would only be responsible for return insured shipping if you decided not to keep the instrument all other monies would be refunded.
The instrument must be returned within 5 day in "as new" conditon. It must be returned in original packing and fully insured.
