A custom guitar facility is a smarter way to buy your ideal guitar, because we are the experts. We not only sell guitars, we design them, build them, repair, customize, and play them. Instead of traveling from store to store looking for just the right combination of features for your ideal guitar, it makes sense to let the experts take all of your favorite features of all of your favorite guitars and combine them all into the instrument that you've always dreamed of having. Simply put, it's the smartest place for a serious guitarist to buy their instrument.


At  Haywire Custom Guitars Inc. we combine the best technology from the past mixed down and tempered with quality parts, knowledge, experience, skill and innovative custom guitar building techniques of the present.  We then condense and distill it into a pure guitar. We believe that there is always room at the top for a great playing, great feeling, high quality, reasonably priced guitar for all professional guitarists around the world.

The real value that Haywire Custom Guitars offers you is its small-scale. With greatly individualized attention to pots, hardware, functionality, ease of use, longevity, tone and play-ability, pros can own a custom guitar packed with lots of attention and details of what they really need and want, rather than, say, settling for trying to play an unready guitar "off the rack" in a music store.

A real "Pro" custom guitar should be way above average in its ability to play smoothly and trouble-free. The tone and feel should inspire so your music will flow freely and help your technique. We are experts and back up our custom guitar work for our clients with a one year  warranty.

Professionals world-wide rely on a custom guitar that they receive from the Haywire Custom Shop. It will be exactly to their specifications, play with ease, sound great, be superior in quality and our design features will compliment their sense of style.
