WILD CUSTOM GUITARS is an artisan workshop… a team of guitar fanatics with creative mindsets… Since 2008, we've built numerous customised guitars and bass. Our custom shop is the pinnacle of our craftsmanship, quality and sound excellence with a constant strive for making the best instruments possible.
Our custom shop offers a wide range of options to build the instrument of your dreams. A lot of options are available from a personalized version of an original Wild custom instrument to a one-off instrument.
You don’t need to be a guitar engineer or an experience guitarist, our team would lead you through the process and help you to define your needs and desires.
How long would it take?
The production lead time would obviously depend on the level of customisation with a minimum of 6 months from validation of the project and reception of the deposit
How much would it cost?
The price of a made to measure instrument starts at 4500€ with split payment options.
We pay a lot of attention to source premium quality woods and we discuss tone wood selection for each project. Our goal is to be as close as possible to our customers expectations. All wood tone options are available on demand.
ULTRA LIGHT AGING
The Ultra-Light Aged finish treatment, paired with lightly aged hardware, simulates decades of light play wear, giving it the unique character, vibe, and feel of an original vintage instrument. Creating patina, and includes dulling of finish, period and model correct checking but no ‘damage’
NORMAL OR LIGHT AGING
The above treatment plus various nicks, chips, dents & dings; surface scratches & some mild finish wear
The above plus buckle wear, some exposed wood, exposed armrest rim, heavily aged hardware
ULTRA HEAVY AGING

WIRING, PICKUPS AND CONTROLS
We’re obviously working with all established guitar pickup companies and also work with boutique pickup manufacturers. We pay a lot of attention to use premium quality wire, capacitors, potentiometers. Based on our experience “less is best” in terms of wiring but all inquiries are more than welcome and we will always do our best to match with your expectations.
ETCHED METAL PLATES
We always try to offer personalisation and customisation options on our instruments. We’ve developed over the years a wide range of unique etched metal plates.
Whether you like an original artwork designed by our team or supply your own artwork, we will make sure you get an astonishing metal plate to set on your instrument.
Your design could either be etched on aluminium alloy or brass and can be aged on demand
