I am open to considering custom/one of a kind instruments. However I
will only take on a custom project if I believe the instrument will be
successful (good playability, sound and looks). There are also certain
appointments and features which I require to be on all my instruments.
Please contact me to discuss ideas you have for your one of a kind
instrument. My standard price list does not apply to these type of
instruments. Please contact me to get a quote. 50% deposit is required
when ordering this kind of instrument.
Customer Supplied Materials:
Occasionally a customer will want to provide wood or other
materials for use on their guitar. I am open to doing this under the

When I receive your deposit, your
order is given the next available spot on my building list. I will then
give you an idea of when you may expect your order to be complete,
though this due date serves only as a general guideline. While I do my
best to build every instrument in a timely manner, I occasionally run
into unforeseen difficulties (back-ordered parts, etc.), which may
cause a delay. I will gladly keep you updated on the timing and
building progress of your instrument. The current wait time for one of
my guitars is approximately 4-6 months.
the event that you are dissatisfied with your guitar due to any clear
and easily definable major issue you have 3 days to notify me after
receiving the instrument. If the problem cannot be corrected than I
will either re-build the guitar or fully refund your payment after I am
able to resell the guitar. For this to take place the guitar must be
returned to me in new condition. All shipping charges are the customers
responsibility. This policy only applies to guitars purchased directly
from House Guitars. Instrument purchased through dealers are subject to
their return policy.

All instruments built by Joshua House of House Guitars are warranted to
be free of defects in materials and workmanship to the original owner
of the instrument. This warranty is subject to limitations and is valid
only as long as I, Joshua, remain active as a luthier. Please contact
me for more information regarding my warranty terms and conditions.
