 Custom Built Guitars & Ukuleles

Woodley White – Luthier

Custom built guitars & ukuleles are made to order according to individual specifications of the artist, and they are also available through selected dealers. Construction time when made to order is 3 to 6 months. We are now accepting orders for new instruments. Base prices are:

 $8,500 for Classical
 $6,000 for Steel string Acoustic
 $18,000 for Harp Guitar
 $2,500 for Ukulele
 $3,000 for Electric

Payment methods – We accept personal checks, money orders, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover.

All of my ukuleles come fully bound with wood bindings, front and back, with lacquer finish (nitro or waterborne) with an Uke Crazy or equivalent hardshell case.  Typically they are made from well-seasoned koa from Mauna Loa with moderate curl and figure.  Other woods are available, such as rosewood, flamed maple, walnut and many others.  The fretboard is usually made with ebony unless otherwise specified.

Classical Guitars are normally French Polish and come with TKL hardshell case.

I warranty my guitars to be free from defects in material and workmanship. I do not warranty the instrument against wear, abuse, neglect, damage due to extremes of humidity or accident, so utmost care is necessary by the player. Repairs not performed by myself, risk cancellation of this warranty and transportation expenses are the responsibility of the owner. If not satisfied with the instrument within fifteen days of receipt, I will build a second one to replace the first. If still not satisfied, the instrument may be returned for the purchase price, less the $1,000 deposit. I will go to great lengths to provide players with instruments that lift their spirits and their skills to new levels.
