How much does a guitar cost?

A sixstring Magistra starts at €1.899,-, a sevenstring at €2.065,- and an eightstring at €2.147,-. A Maximus starts at €2.685,-. These prices are including a Hiscox hardcase and excluding 21% VAT (which EU-inhabitants have to add up, on the instruments pages we have pricelists including and excluding VAT).

The basic price includes several choices of woods for the body, 5-piece neck and fretboard and multiple possible scales. For the hardware Hipshot, Schaller and Sperzel options are included and for pickups we offer a choice of Bare Knuckle, Seymour Duncan, EMG and DiMarzio in the basic price.
Additionally priced options include highgloss finishes, top woods, multiscale and other types of hardware (including Evertune and tremolo systems) and pickups. Check out our pricelists for all options and feel free to ask if something you want is not mentioned!

 

How do I order a guitar?

Just get in touch with us! At our Magistra and Maximus pages you can find a contact form as well as pricelists with options. In the orderform you can fill out the options you'd like to have, but this is not compulsory. Even if you have no clue about specs, we are happy to help if you send us examples of guitars you like and the music you play - we can work out a great guitar together! We require a 40% non-refundable deposit. After that, you can either pay 60%+shipment when the guitar is done and we have sent pictures of it, or we can work out a payment plan with multiple smaller payments during the building process. Of course, we will send pictures of the building process of your guitar regularly.

 

How can I pay for my guitar?
We accept bank transfers and PayPal.

Do you ship to my country?
We ship worldwide using Fed-Ex, a reliable and fast service with full insurance. Shipment is about €70,- within the EU and €150,- to the USA. Of course you are always welcome to pick up your guitar at our workshop if possible!

 

How long does it take to build my guitar?
Currently it takes 6-7 months to finish a Magistra guitar, 9 months for a Magistra with neckthrough construction and Maximus. We are working hard to speed up the building process, but since it's a one man show this will take some time.

Can I get an endorsement deal?
As you can see on our artist page, we do have endorsed artists. However, as a small one-man custom company we can't just hand out free guitars. We are always open to a mutually beneficial cooperation.
We don't have strict thresholds for artists who want to become an endorsee nor fixed contracts and discounts. We look at each artist seperately, taking into account live performances, (social media) reach, quality of recorded videos and audio and of course you've got to be an awesome guitar player!
