FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS:

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM BODIES?
Short answer: No. Because we are a CNC shop we do not make ANY custom bodies or do ANY alternations to the bodies shown. The bodies come exactly as shown and we do not make ANY changes. Even what you might consider "simple" changes ( ie. "Can you just leave out the pickup pocket"P) No changes whatsoever....

DO YOU DO CONTRACT MANUFACTURING?
Yes. Being a CNC shop we are uniquely qualified to do short or long run contract manufacturing of guitar bodies. The MINIMUM run is 10 bodies of exactly the same type run at the same time. Contact us for a price quote. Because of the CNC's we use you can be assured of extremely high quality AND extremely consistent bodies!

WHERE DO YOU SHIP?
We ship to any US Street Address.   Sorry, but we do not ship outside the USA.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP?
We ship almost all correct web orders the SAME business day as received

CAN I PICK UP MY ORDER?
Due to our extremely strict zoning laws, we do not allow pick ups or visits of any kind.

CAN I GIVE YOU MY PARTS TO FIT?
I am sorry but we do not work on customer supplied parts.

HOW ARE RETURNS HANDLED?
We do accept returns within 30 days of your recept of the product.  Please contact us for a Return Authorization number (RA number)  Please write this number on the OUTSIDE of the box in magic marker.  Please understand that because we cannot sell a returned product as "new" we must charge a 15% restock fee.  Do not make a purchase unless you understand and agree to these return terms.  By publishing these terms we can ensure that, should a return become necessary, each party understands the exact procedure and there will be no surprises.   


WHAT FINISH IS ON THE GUITAR OR BASS BODIES?
Our bodies (unless otherwise stated) come unfinished.  They are fully shaped and contoured.  We generally fill any voids, checks, knots, etc. in the wood or veneer with resin for you.  For our pictures we wipe the body with Naptha to show the figure and grain.  Naptha leaves no residue. 


HOW DO I FINISH MY BODY?
You can finish your body in any way you wish!  It can be as easy as wiping on your favorite oil up to professionally applied, UV cured polymer finishes.  We suggest grain filler (if required), and finish sanding to at least 220 grit, but really, it is up to you and what look you are going for!  
 

WHAT ABOUT NECK FITMENT?
We route the neck pockets to factory specs (where applicable).  For most Fender® types this is 2-3/16" wide and 5/8" deep with the correct radius in the back.  For Tele® types the pocket is 2.190" + - .007" wide, 5/8" deep but with NO Radius in the back.  Please check YOUR necks dimensions carefully before you order.  Some imported necks vary WIDELY.  Please note, temperature, humidity and other factors can cause minor changes in dimension so some minor fitting may be required.

 

CAN I FIT A TELE® TYPE NECK IN A STRAT® POCK OR VICE VERSA?
Generally speaking you CAN fit a Strat® type neck into a Tele® type pocket.  There will be small gaps in the corners (which will be covered if you are using a 22 fret neck that "hangs over" the heel of the neck) but it will fit and intonate correctly.  A Tele® type neck will NOT intonate correctly in a Strat® type pocket unless modifications are done.


TELL ME ABOUT THE VENEERS YOU USE.
We use a wide variety of veneers on our bodies, we try to picture them accurately.  Our veneers are industry standard 1/42" thick, glued to the body under vacuum with glues that are specifically formulated for vacuum veneering.  Like the bodies, we do not apply any finish on the veneer.  Some veneers, depending on species, will require more (or less) filling and/or sanding.  Some have knots, voids, etc...
