FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS:

WHERE DO YOU SHIP?
We ship to any US Street Address.  We use UPS for deivery and UPS does not deliver to PO Boxes so we require a physical street address.  Sorry, but we do not ship outside the USA.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP?
We ship 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?
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 and sanded to a 120 grit.  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 2-3/16" 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...


WHAT IS A "SUPRA-FIT" TELE BODY?
The  "Supra-Fit"  Tele type bodies we make are made specifically to be more comfortable to play than standard Tele bodies.  All standard Tele parts (necks, controls, pickguards, bridges, etc.) still fit.  This is accomplished by machining Strat type forearm and tummy cuts into the body.  These are true 3d cuts.  The forearm cut is properly radiused  (NOT just an angle cut) and the tummy cut is of the proper radius.  This makes for a slightly lighter, but MUCH more comfortable body!

 

WHAT IS A "SUPRA-STRAT" BODY AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM A REGULAR STRAT BODY?
A "Supra-Strat" is our version of the perfect Strat type body.  We machine the upper and lower cutaways deeper to allow for unfettered access to the higher frets.  We also contour the heel (where the neck bolts on... be sure and use the correct length screws!), use a standard 7/8" diameter input jack hole on the edge of the guitar, and we machine in the control cavity from the rear, doing away with the pickguard.  All of these modifications produce an instrument that feels as amazing as it plays!
