    Calculating time remaining

    Story

    Along with the various video interviews that have recently surfaced, Johnny Marr's recent book "Marr's Guitars" gives a brilliantly insightful glimpse not only into the guitar afficionado's personal collection, but also into The Smith's iconic sound. It also served as a reminder to us about a particular guitar which has been on our bucket list for a long time: The Super Axe.

    An oddity for its time, the original Super Axe featured a massive (think 335-size) yet thin, chambered body with an arched top. Anyone who's managed to get their hands on one agrees: this thing is the king of sustain! It also featured a couple of on board effects, which helped to separate this model even further from the average Joe.

    Our recreation of the Super Axe will feature a couple of key changes. Here's the thing... effects pedals have made leaps and bounds over the past 50 years. Rather than force you into a couple of specific on-board effects, we're including the same OBEL electronics and coil tap options as found on our best-selling Wolf Guitar. This way, you can get the full potential from whatever effects pedals you wish to use in your chain. In addition, we're swapping the wrap-around bridge for a tune-o-matic with stop-tail, so you can easily incoporate a Les Trem if desired.

    The Eastwood Super Axe will be built at our top Korean factory - you will NOT be disappointed in the quality!

    WE DESIGN

    Every day we receive suggestions for new models from guitar players like you. We take the best ideas and turn them into projects.

    YOU BACK IT

    These ideas are uploaded here where you can reserve one with a small deposit. A reasonable funding goal sets the project in motion.

    WE DELIVER

    Once the project reaches its funding goal, we go to production. When your instrument is ready, you pay the balance, and we ship!

    For a while now we’ve been looking for a better way to bring custom guitars to our customers. Each and every day we receive dozens of requests for customizations and special models. While some of the ideas are downright fantastic, we just can’t create them all.

    While Crowdfunding initiatives are nothing new, this model is new to the guitar industry.  It’s a model we believe in, and believe our customers will appreciate and take part in. This will allow us to build more of those customer-suggested models and the best part of all – you save money every step of the way.

    How Does This Save Money?

    Because we get a clear picture of initial production and setup costs, we can better manage expenses at these early stages. It removes various levels of financial risk in the manufacturing process and therefore the savings can be passed on to you.

    Why Do Things This Way?

    Pre-Orders help to ensure we have the model/color you want as opposed to our standard short production runs where we often sell out quickly. Or the flip side, where we get stuck with a model/color that nobody wants, which wastes money.

    Can We Submit Ideas?

    Absolutely! Please drop us a line if you have a suggestion for a new model. If we think it will find enough pre-order customers, we will post it and give you the tools to help promote it within your social media networks.

    CUSTOM PROJECT FAQs

    The deposit will be charged when you complete checkout. We will invoice the balance when your guitar is ready.

    Deposits range from $100-$300USD, depending on the final retail price of the instrument.

    The funding goal is determined based on the minimum quantity of deposits required to go forward with product.

    Of course! You will receive a full refund if the project goal is not met within the funding period.

    Production schedules vary depending on the instrument. An ETA will be shown on each project's page, and you'll be updated along the way. Your remaining balance will be invoiced when the instrument is ready to ship to you.

    Yes, projects are fully refundable until we commit to production with our manufacturing facilities (typically 7-10 days after funding closes). After that time, the pre-order deposit is non-refundable.
