At Thompson Guitars we talk about being a custom shop all the time. The idea of taking a model and adding appointments to make it ‘just for you’ is something that gives us great pleasure.
Our inlay designer and professional artist, Simon Haycraft, is one of the main contributors to making a guitar extra special for our customers. He has the ability to create beauty with classic appeal. Preston and Simon talked a lot about keeping things subtle, classic and simple.
Adding abalone top trim, custom rosettes and fretboard markers, whether you bind your guitar in tortoise, ivoroid or wood all these appointments make each guitar unique. We take the vintage and create different modern versions of those classic guitars.
Thank you for considering a custom option with choices from our spectacular sunbursts, custom inlays, combination of bindings and abalone and variety of traditional and original torches. We enjoy creating our guitars for you to pass on to the next generation.
