Frequently Asked Questions
What tuners will fit my guitar?
This can be difficult to answer without inspecting the instrument. Many manufacturers use a variety of different tuners on their guitars, sometimes within the same model run. The technical specifications of the tuners we stock can be found online and in our catalog. We suggest comparing your existing machines and peghole dimensions to our listed specs to help determine the best replacement.
What specific motor do we recommend for the Buffing Arbor?
To power our Buffing Arbor we recommend a 1/3 to 1/2-horsepower motor with a 2" pulley that runs at 1725 rpm. Dayton Motors model 3K772 is a common motor that is available from a number of suppliers.
Can I build a left-handed instrument from your guitar kits?
Though our guitar kits are intended for right-handed players, the soundboard bracing patterns can be reversed to build a left-handed instrument. You can make a left-handed bridge from scratch using one of our bridge blanks.
What nut files do you recommend for my guitar?
Choose nut slotting files that are the same size or no more that a few thousands larger than your individual string gauges.
A smaller file can also be rocked side-to-side to widen a slot to the desired size. For example, you can cut a .036" slot with a .035" file by moving it around a bit.
What should I use to slot my Tune-o-matic saddles?
Nut slotting files work great for saddles. Simply use the same techniques you'd use for nut slotting. After filing to the desired depth, we suggest polishing the slot with Mitchell's Abrasive Cord to remove file marks and burrs.
Will your attachments for Dremel fit my generic brand or other moto-type tool?
If your tool has a removable nosepiece with a 3/4-12 thread, it should work with our attachments.
Which size truss rod wrench do I need?
Unfortunately, not all instrument makers provide this information, and it's not uncommon for companies to switch rods between production runs or models. There are a few standard rod sizes, however:
Gibson guitars, mandolins and banjos (American made) have a 5/16" adjustment nut. Use a 5/16" hex wrench. This measurement also comes in a pocket-size wrench.
Fender guitars and basses (American made) commonly have a 1/8" Allen nut. This includes the bullet adjustment nut, the American Standards, and most models made in the USA with a peghead-adjustable truss rod. Use a 1/8" Allen wrench.
For Fender vintage-style heel-adjustable "X" nut, use a flat blade wrench that is a specially made Truss Rod Wrench for Fender.
Martin guitars (American made) have a 5mm Allen nut and would use an angled wrench to reach the neck heel through the soundhole. Use our Soundhole Truss Rod Wrench.
Taylor guitars have a 1/4" hex nut. Use a 1/4" hex wrench. This measurement also comes in a pocket-size wrench.
Necks through StewMac have a 4mm Allen nut. Use a 4mm Allen wrench for these necks:
Through-body Guitar Neck
22-Fret Blank-peghead Guitar Necks
Replacement Neck for Strat
Replacement Neck for Tele
Replacement Neck for Fender Bass
Can I make my own custom-scale fretboards?
You can make your own fretboard using our miter box and saw, and a blank fretboard.
Do you stock gold powder for Goldtop guitar finishes?
No. It's manufactured by the Crescent Bronze Powder Company in Chicago, IL. Their product number is 256, although Dan Erlewine sometimes uses 255 depending on the instrument.
Can you ship nitrocellulose lacquer outside the USA or recommend a source?
We cannot ship nitrocellulose lacquer outside of the USA, and we don't have an overseas source to recommend to you. An internet search should help you find a supplier in your area.
However, we'd like to recommend our Target Waterbase Spraying Lacquer, which we can ship internationally. It is non-flammable, and is available as a Brushing Varnish. It is formulated to work with ColorTone pigments and liquid stains.
I just finished a bolt-on neck with a maple fretboard. I read online that I should spray the lacquer directly on the frets, so that's what I did. How do I remove the lacquer from the frets?
Don't use any kind of solvent to remove lacquer overspray from frets, or you'll damage the fretboard finish. Instead, the finish can be carefully scraped off. Using a nut slotting file of the appropriate gauge, you can make a custom scraper using a nail, X-acto blade, or something similar.
Dan Erlewine uses a 16-penny nail. He simply files a notch in the nailhead, just deep and wide enough to fit over the fret without touching the fretboard. Using an X-acto knife, he carefully scores the lacquer on both sides of the fret to prevent unwanted finish chipping. He then slowly scrapes the lacquer off of the fret with the slotted nailhead.
Can I replace a modern Fender American Standard Tele bridge with a vintage style 3-saddle bridge without modifications?
Installation of a Traditional Bridge for Tele on an American Standard model requires additional drilling. The mounting screws on the vintage models are in a different location. The string mounting holes match, however.
How do I tell the difference between the gauges on my Double-edge Nut File, they're not marked.
We recommend that you make a cut on a scrap piece of bone or wood with both sides of the Double-edge Nut File, then measure the width of each cut with feeler gauges to determine which side is which. Guitar strings of known gauges will also work as measuring tools in a pinch.
Once you have determined the proper edge, mark the file accordingly with a permanent marker.
I'm interested in getting into guitar building and repair. Do you recommend any specific books or DVDs?
We offer a wide variety of books and DVDs that cover repair and building procedures, from beginning to advanced, as well as specific areas such as fretting and finishing. Outstanding resources for general information include the Guitar Player Repair Guide and Dan Erlewine's Maintenance & Setup DVDs. A variety of excellent books are also available for building a complete guitar.
I don't have any experience with this type of work, do you think I could fix my...?
Take your instrument to a reputable local repair shop for an evaluation. That way, you can determine if you're comfortable doing the repair yourself, or letting a professional do it.
Is a product safe if it carries a Proposition 65 warning?
The fact that a product bears a Proposition 65 warning does not mean by itself that the product is unsafe.
You could think of Proposition 65 more as a "right to know" law than a pure product safety law. Voters who approved Proposition 65 in 1986 intended that Californians should have a right to know when they may be exposed to chemicals that cause cancer or reproductive harm. That way, consumers and their families can decide on their own if they want to purchase and/or use the product.
All the products we sell are stocked here in our warehouse, and we take great care in packing all shipments.
Secure web shopping is guaranteed. Your credit card safety is assured through encryption.
We welcome questions. Our customer service department will quickly answer your e-mail.
|In the rare case that we've made a mistake with your order, we correct the error at no charge. We also insure your packages, so if one does not arrive we will reship it to you at no charge.|
Choose Body Shape
We recommend you choose the shape that appeals to you most. Unlike acoustic and classical guitars, the shape of an electric guitar or bass does not significantly affect the way the instrument sounds or performs. Choose from our existing body shapes, or, send us a drawing of your original design - we can build that, too!
Choose Body Core Wood
All our instruments are handcrafted from quality tone woods. If you're just starting out, we recommend you choose the wood that appeals to you most based on its appearance, and don't worry too much about how the type of wood affects the sound or performance of the instrument.
* The type of body wood used can affect the way an instrument sounds, but it does not make as big of an impact on the sound when compared to other aspects of the guitar, such as the pickups.
Choose Body Top
Body tops are optional. If you're just starting out, you should either skip this option, or choose the veneer top that appeals to you most. We offer veneer tops (paper-thin layer of wood) and cap tops (thick layer of wood). Most people will add a top to their instrument because of the top’s naturally beautiful appearance. Some people will add a top to their guitar because it can affect the overall sound of the instrument, too (only applies to cap tops, not veneers).
Choose the Color for Body Top
Choose the color you want for the body top. You can choose the color for the sides and back of the body later. You can choose whether you want the color to be solid, transparent, metallic, or gloss, and matte in a later step.
Choose the Color for Body Sides and Back
Choose the color you want for the sides and back of the body. You can choose between solid, transparent, metallic, or gloss, and matte in a later step.
Choose the Kind of Color
We offer three kinds of colors:
Natural - choose this if you want to see the wood grain and natural color
Transparent - choose this if you want to see the wood grain
Solid - choose this if you do not want to see the wood grain
Metallic - choose this if you do not want to see the wood grain, and if you want highly-reflective metal flakes mixed in with the color
You can choose between gloss and matte (satin) finishes in a later step.
Choose the Kind of Finish
We offer two kinds of finish:
Gloss - choose this if you want your guitar to have a very shiny, highly-reflective surface
Matte (Satin) - choose this if you want your guitar to have a slightly shiny, slightly-reflective surface
You may want to consider the following facts:
Gloss finishes attract fingerprints
Gloss finishes can be easily buffed to remove light surface scratches
Satin finishes do not attract fingerprints as much as gloss finishes
Satin finishes cannot be as easily buffed to remove light surface scratches compared to gloss finishes
* The type of finish can affect the way an instrument sounds, but it does not make as big of an impact on the sound when compared to other aspects of the guitar, such as the pickups
Choose Neck Wood
The neck wood is used for the headstock and for the back of the neck (where your thumb rests when playing the instrument). Be careful not to confuse the neck wood with the fretboard wood, as they are separate and different. All our necks are handcrafted from quality tone woods. If you're just starting out, we recommend you choose the wood that appeals to you most based on its appearance, and don't worry too much about how the type of wood affects the sound or performance of the instrument.
* The type of neck wood can affect the way an instrument sounds, but it does not make as big of an impact on the sound when compared to other aspects of the guitar, such as the pickups.
Choose Fretboard Wood
The fretboard wood is used for the part where the frets are installed (front of the neck, where you press on the strings). All our fretboards are built from quality tone woods. If you're just starting out, we recommend you choose the wood that appeals to you most based on its appearance, and don't worry too much about how the type of wood affects the sound or performance of the instrument.
* The type of fretboard wood used can affect the way an instrument sounds, but it does not make as big of an impact on the sound when compared to other aspects of the guitar, such as the pickups.
Choose the Color for the Back of Neck
Choose the color you want for the back of the neck. You can choose between solid, transparent, metallic, or gloss, and matte in a later step.
Choose the Number of Frets
There is not one standard # of frets, but the three most common are 21, 22 and 24 frets. The extra frets simply mean you can play some additional high notes. If you are just starting out, you will probably be just fine choosing 21, 22 or 24 frets. But, you should probably avoid the fretless option unless you're specifically learning how to play fretless instruments.
Choose the Size of the Frets
The frets are the little metal pieces that are installed in the instrument's neck. Frets do not make a significant difference in the sound of the instrument. They come in various sizes and materials. If you're just starting out, we recommend choosing Medium size frets made of Nickel-Silver. For a more scalloped feel, we recommend Extra Jumbo size frets. For increased durability (wear-and-tear), we recommend Stainless Steel frets. Some customers have reported stainless steel frets to be very slippery and brighter sounding when compared to nickel-silver frets – this could be a good, or a bad thing depending on the player.
Choose the Inlays
The inlays are the little shapes that are installed in the instruments neck/fretboard. Inlays do not make a significant difference in the sound of the instrument. They come in various shapes and materials. Inlays allow a player to quickly see where certain positions are located on the fretboard. They are also a great way to decorate, or personalize an instrument. Choose among our existing inlays designs, or send us a drawing of your own designs. Some popular inlay designs are band logos, initials, corporate brand logos, or tribal designs.
Choose the Inlay Color
The inlay color does not make a significant difference in the sound of the instrument. We use acrylic material for black, white and pearl white color. We use genuine abalone shell for abalone color.
Choose Shape of Headstock
We recommend you choose the headstock shape that appeals to you most. The shape of the headstock does not significantly affect the sound or performance of the instrument. Some of our headstock shapes are pointier, which means they can get damaged more easily when dropped or bumped. Choose from our existing shapes, or, send us a drawing of your original design - we can build that, too!
Choose the Color for the Headstock
Choose the color you want for the headstock face. You can choose the color for the back of the neck later. You can choose between solid, transparent, metallic, or gloss, and matte in a later step.
Choose the Tuners
The tuners are crucial components on all guitars and basses. They are installed in the guitar's headstock and they secure one end of the string (the other end is secured by the guitar’s bridge). There are two types of tuners:
Locking tuners are always better than non-locking tuners, but they are more expensive.
It is easier to install strings and easier to keep strings in tune with locking tuners.
If you can afford locking tuners, then we always recommend them over non-locking tuners.
Choose the Bridge Type
The bridge is a crucial component on all guitars and basses. It is installed on top of the body and it secures one end of the strings (the other end is secured by the tuning keys).
There are two types of bridges:
If you're just starting out, we recommend choosing Fixed Bridge. They are easier to keep in tune and maintain. If you plan on using a whammy bar, then choose Tremolo Bridge.
Choose the Bridge Brand
There are hundreds of different bridges available on the market. If you’re just starting out, then we recommend choosing the Custom Top Guitars fixed bridge.
Here are some facts to consider when choosing among the other bridges:
Tone Pros Tune-o-Matic bridges have a locking feature to stabilize the bridge pieces onto the guitar body. They can be used on both flat top and carve top bodies.
Hipshot Hardtail bridges are an excellent choice for flat top bodies. They are not recommended for carve top bodies.
Evertune bridges are designed to keep your guitar in tune forever, and they do! Evertune bridges do not require any battery power or special robot gears. It is a passive, all-mechanical solution and can be installed on both flat top and carve top bodies.
Hannes bridges are designed to be extremely comfortable, and to maximize each string’s sound characteristics. This bridge is not recommended for carve top bodies.
Floyd Rose Tremolo bridges feature a double-locking system for the ultimate in tuning stability. They have the widest range-of-motion. If huge dive-bombs and harmonic pull-ups are mandatory, then we recommend the Floyd Rose
Kahler Tremolo bridges feature 6-way adjustable string saddles, which really allow you to dial in your string action and intonation. They have a fairly wide range-of-motion, but less than the Floyd Rose. The Kahler’s have a smoother feel compared to the Floyd Rose, and also have a convenient locking mechanism to convert the bridge into a fixed bridge.
Hipshot Tremolo bridges are simple, yet very effective. They have great tone and stay in tune well. They are a more compact system and are great for most tremolo users
Choose the Pickup Configuration
The Pickups are crucial components on all guitars and basses. They significantly affect the sound of an instrument. They are installed in the instrument’s body. If you’re just starting out on guitar, choose Humbucker pickups if you are playing hard rock and metal styles; choose Single Coil pickups if you are playing country and blues styles.
For guitar, there are two common types of pickups:
Humbucker (H) – generally have a thicker sound, higher output, and work well for most styles including hard rock/metal
Single-Coil (S) – generally have a kind of “twangy” sound, lower output, and work well for most styles, especially country and blues. Not typically used for hard rock and metal, but this is not a rule.
For bass, we offer four common types of pickups:
P Style – generally have a “fat, slightly hollow tone”. Commonly used in the neck position.
J Style – generally known to have a brighter sound. Commonly used in the bridge and neck position.
Humbucker – generally have a fuller sound with an emphasis on lows and mids. Commonly used in the bridge and neck position.
MM Style – generally have a cleaner tone, a lot of attack and bite, increased highs and lows. Commonly used in between the bridge and neck position, or in the “sweet spot”.
Choose the Pickup Brand
There are hundreds of different pickups available on the market. If you’re just starting out, we recommend choosing Custom Top Guitars pickups.
Choose the Color of the Hardware
The hardware color does not affect the sound or performance of the instrument. It is cosmetic only. Choose the color that appeals to you most. This color will then be used on all hardware, which include screws, nuts, washers, switches, tuners, bridges, and knobs.
Choose Optional Upgrades
Strap Locks – these enable you to lock your guitar strap onto your guitar. Without strap locks, your guitar strap is at risk of slipping off, which could result in damage. We highly recommended strap locks if you dance or jump around while performing on stage with your guitar.
Your Signature on Headstock – this is a great way to personalize your custom guitar or bass!
Pick Guard – these are generally made of plastic material and they help protect your instrument’s finish from the constant contact with your guitar pick and fingertips. Pick guards are also decorative. Some classic guitar designs don’t look the same without the pick guard!
Custom Graphics – this is a great way to personalize your custom instrument. Some common graphics are corporate brand logos, band logos, family names, tribal designs, blood splatter, camouflage, just to name a few… Send us your design and we’ll put it on your instrument!
Guitar is packed with Styrofoam (Fully Protected). Hard shell case, straps, tuners, and other accessories are not included in the package.

What Does Custom Shop means?
Do you know what does custom shop means? Like custom shop cars and motorcycle, furniture. With Top Guitars it pertains to woodworking, most of us would define a custom shop as one dealing with made-to-order goods with certain specifications. Someone comes into my realm with a certain vision. That vision may be on a set of architectural prints or still locked in their brain waiting for extraction. In either case, it’s a vision or plan that they have, not me.
A good custom shop will have insight based on their experience that will help make the project better. That’s part of being custom — making concepts a reality. But there is more to running a custom shop than simply having the ability and experience to create someone’s dream. Figuring out what that is requires a little digging. The concept is buried in first understanding the other meanings of the word custom. Although “made-to-order” is a correct characterization where you can personalized the headtsock with your name or initials and you can CUSTOMIZE YOUR GUITAR: Mahogany, Alder, Maple, Bass Wood, Right/Left handed guitar, Body colour, Neck profile, No dots on fretboard and Fret size.Our Custom Shop Guitars referred to in this site as drawing "inspiration" from the major guitar brands and any reference to custom shop brand names or "Inspired by" are made strictly for comparison purposes only.

Fret Buzz or Bow Neck?
Our professional guitar technicians inspect each instrument by hand, then perform a full, and precision setup. All brand new guitars need proper setup after shipment to suit your personal preference that would strongly correlate to your playing style. Truss rod adjustments are made to alter the straightness (flatness) of the neck. Truss rods often require adjusting when temperature and humidity change the amount of bow in the neck. Weather, specifically temperature and humidity, may have a dramatic impact on the way your instrument plays. All instrument woods expand and contract with seasonal actuations in temperature and humidity, and naturally, string height and playing action are affected. The neck needs a simple truss rod adjustment to correct any problems like fret buzz and bow neck which can be easily done by guitar experts. And also, you may adjust the bar of bridge. Please be advised that guitar necks are crafted from wood, and they will sometimes shift during shipping and as the temperature/humidity/elevation changes. An important part of maintaining your guitar is knowing how to adjust the truss rod. When a guitar experiences temperature and humidity swings, such as when seasons change, it can develop a slight bow in the neck that results in a guitar that plays buzzy or is suddenly much harder to fret. If this situation occurs, you can often correct the problem simply by tightening or loosening the truss rod. You may bring your brand new guitar in your Local Guitar Shop for proper setup and adjustment of the truss rod.
The instruments have been set up at the factory. However, time, temperature, and transportation are a few of the many things that can cause a guitar to go out of "intonation". We recommend that you get your new guitar set up by a qualified luthier upon delivery. We recommend taking it to a qualified guitar tech for a set up. They will adjust the neck and bridge to take out the buzzing. We ensure that before shipment there is no evident of fret buzz before shipment and the guitar plays beautifully since our professional guitar technicians inspect each instrument by hand, then perform a full, and precision setup. All brand new guitars need proper setup after shipment to suit your personal preference that would strongly correlate to your playing style. We believe that your Local Guitar Shop can properly and safely adjust the truss rod and setup the guitar correctly for issues of fret buzz and bow neck.

Our production/assemble time frame: 20 - 25 working days since our professional Control Team and Supervisor Engineer will ensure that your ordered guitar is top notch considering the fact that this guitar is intricate to assemble and they check very carefully every detail such as the finish, fret work, pickups, strings. And also, they will test the sound quality. We do not rush up the process of manufacturing your guitar since we would like to deliver to you best quality performance. The Top Guitars bodies, necks and fingerboards are all handcrafted from premium tone woods, Wilkinson parts, electronics and hardware are imported from Japan and South Korea. We also offer EMG and Seymour Duncan Pickups imported from USA. We have Schaller tremolo and MEC Pickups imported from Germany.
