    Only a hand full of spots are left for 2017 builds. Once they fill up I'll be "sold out" until 2018.

    - Interest free payment plans with only AU$100.00 pre deposit
    - Many upgrades available inc timbers, hardware and finishes
    - Real time build updates "as it's happening" via facebook

    International freight available, or can collect in person.

    Message me now and we can talk specs.

    New website is great! I know it's still in the works but it's looking the goods :)

    Thanks, at this stage it's about getting the info up, as id rather invest time into the guitars themselves than the website and learning how to make a "pretty" one, so yeah, its got info but lacking a bit of the aesthetics!

    My priorities at the moment are getting the workshop up and running again and I've been working on the site constantly getting it ready for the earth works which will hopefully be happening in a matter of weeks.

    For anyone who hasn't been, drop into www.searlsguitars.com.au and have a look around

    That finish is absolutely sick. Really dig that.

    Something a little different than a lot of the builds coming out of the old workshop, I love graphics on guitars and I wish more people ordered airbrushed guitars from me!

    Yeah, a little bit of burst just to frame it and blend it into the back.

    I haven't posted many pics of inside the new workshop, so here is one - this is the east wall and the long bench under the window is used as a lay out table and glue station.

    Michael has chosen his body blank, pretty sure the smile says it all!

    Neck blanks are underway:

    Thanks. They add a bit of colour to liven the place up a bit.

    Pale moon Ebony is the one you're pointing out. There will be more of it in the upcoming runs next year.
