the lite series

retro-modern budget boutique

Since day one, our overriding aim has been to make owning a custom-made guitar as affordable as possible. We’ve been uncompromising when it comes to the design of our core range of instruments, but premium features like chambering & bespoke hardware come at a cost


In these challenging times, we feel it’s more important than ever that musicians can reach for their dream instrument to help inspire joy, creativity and amazing new music. To that end, we’re launching a new range of handcrafted, custom shop solid-body guitars made in the UK for under £1,000 (even if you go crazy with the options)


All of our core body shapes (Stellarosa, Double Standard and JB) are now available in the new Lite format. We’ve stripped back the wiring and premium metalwork but kept everything else that makes us special, including aged nitro finishes in a range of classic colours. Each guitar features a single hand-wound piece from Mojo Pickups, with a versatile “Fat Mustang” unit unique to this range fitted as standard & positioned wherever you like
