ashcustomworks brings the art and craft of hand made guitars together with carefully selected materials to create the guitar of your dreams. Whether you need a custom built instrument based on one of the standard Ash guitar or bass models, a hard working Radian guitar, you've come to the right place!

NB: Ash Customworks no longer does any refinishing or repair of guitars (other than those built by Ash Customworks). Stay tuned for recommended alternative repairers.

Whats New - Ten Years On >>
September 1st, 2014 was the tenth anniversary of Ash Customworks setting up shop at Charles St and marked some big changes for the future. The repair/modification/refinish service has closed permanently. Custom electric guitars and basses are still being built, but only 10 places are available each year and they must be based on one of the 100+ guitar projects that have already been started.

If you want a custom guitar built, the first thing to do is to buy yourself a place in the waiting list ($50). Once your turn arrives your design/quote will be done ($150) and when a place in the build queue opens up, you pay your 30% deposit and it's all go! That means you should get on the list NOW for the mid-2015 batch.

Whats New - Zombie Collection >>
The Zombie Collection is made up of all those incomplete guitars, bodies and necks that have slowly littered the workshop over the last ten years. Because there are so many (100+), any future orders need to start life as one of these Zombies until they're all gone. Don't worry! There are all kinds of guitars represented. All the Ash and Radian models, teles, strats, Les Pauls, SGs, Flying Vees, Explorers, PRS, basses, baritones, superstrats, lefties, righties, you name it! Some day soon I'll start announcing batches of Zombies that are going to become available for completion. Any batch that gets three or four committed buyers will be the next to be completed.

Whats New - Website Upgrade Coming >>
Yes folks, it's true... after far too many years an upgrade is in the planning stages. This will take ages, so the manky old website will still be here for a while, but in the meantime, you can check out all the other sources of Ash Customworks and Radian content on teh interwebz at these fine places:
