Custom Project Quote
Submitting a custom project request form for evaluation is free. Customization is a one time fee and your custom part will be assigned a part number. Re-orders of that part number do not have a one time fee – simply the piece cost we ultimately agree upon in the customization.
Custom Neck – $100 minimum charge for customization. Most custom acoustic necks similar to the ones offered by Birkonium can be fully customized for that $100 fee. Special features such as custom headstock shapes, Spanish Heel etc. may be possible as well but may also incur an additional charge depending on the time required for those specific requests. Standard neck customization typically takes two weeks plus two to four weeks to manufacture depending on when the request made with respect to the manufacturing schedule.
Custom Fretboard – $40 minimum Charge – this fee covers standard customization of the fretboard – scale length, width at nut/join fret etc. Inlay and other customization may also be added for additional fees.
Multiscale Custom Fretboard – $50 minimum Charge – this fee covers standard customization of the fretboard – bass and treble scale length, perpendicular fret selection, width at nut/join fret etc. Inlay and other customization may also be added for additional fees.
Other Custom Projects – $100 minimum deposit – if you’re looking for a custom project not on the list above, this is the form to use. Examples of custom projects are:
- Custom Inlay of Headplates,
- Fretboards, or other inlay
- Templates, forms and jigs
- Electric guitar necks
- Bridge designs
- CAD designs for your own CNC work
- CNC consultation and tutoring
Once the form is submitted, Birkonium will evaluate your custom request and make sure it’s something that is a good fit and additionally, a price range estimate for any customizations beyond the standards. Upon acceptance of price range estimates and payment of the minimum fee your project will be started.
