• Grade of materials – you have a choice in the materials used that pertain to the beauty of your guitar. You can select 3A, 4A, or master grade. This selection really impacts the beauty of your instrument and not the tone or quality of construction.
• Back and sides – you can be as involved in making this selection as you wish. Feel free to write in your selection if you do not find it in the drop down list.
• Neck shape and style – The default is a “C” shape with 1 ¾” width, but you can specify anything that meets your specific needs. You can choose to have a one piece or five piece neck. Select one or 5 piece for the estimate, but we can concern ourselves with the shape later on.
• Rosette – Wood rosettes can add a lot of beauty to a guitar. You have a lot of flexibility in this area. Feel free to write in the notes what you would like (i.e., radial design, curly wood, spalted Maple, multi-wood, or other.
• Inlays – there are endless choices available when it comes to inlays for the fingerboard and headstock ranging from pre-cut designs to totally custom designs. While you may not know exactly what you want in this point in time, we can talk about the options.
• Tuners – the default is Grover or Gotoh, but you can specify whatever you like.
The options are endless on a custom McNeill guitar, but I can help you narrow things down fairly quickly to what would meet your needs and desires.
