Custom Guitars

Origin Road is not just a music store, a rehearsal space, an event space, and a recording studio.  We also build custom guitars.  Darryl has been a woodworker for the last 30 years and has been building electric guitars and basses since 2009.  In 2020, Christopher started learning the craft of guitar building, working with Darryl in his shop.  We have been trying to document some of our builds on Facebook on our page, Origin Road Guitars.

Christopher has learned a lot in the last year and is working on his third guitar.  His very first build was a completely custom design that he came up with and built from scratch.  Dubbed “The Fish Guitar”, it has an Ash body, Quilted Maple top, Mohogany neck, Maple fingerboard, Abalone fret markers, Seymour Duncan pickups, Graphtech nut, Tuneomatic Roller bridge, Tusq string trees, Vintage Style Tuners, and Lox strap locks.  The finish is a custom stain job that Chris did himself.  Chris is very proud of his first ever guitar build and is hooked and ready to build more.  His current build is a slimline Telecaster that is almost ready for finishing.  Tune in to our Facebook page for more updates on our builds.

We have a number of guitars that are currently under construction.  We plan to post more to Facebook as we complete these guitars and create new ones.  Here are some photos of our build progress so far…
