Mariner Custom Guitars

Since 2015, we’ve specialized in working with our clients to bring their self-designed dream to life by meticulously handcrafting their electric guitar from start to finish. We believe that each musician should not have to settle for what is available, but rather have an opportunity to design their own affordable custom guitar. To this end, we put you first, dedicating craftsmanship, superior intonation and sound, and enhanced playability. Unlike a major manufacturing production line, we focus on the details of what makes a great guitar — ultimately separating a guitar from a finely crafted instrument. 

De Haan

Frank De Hann built his first guitar in the barn of his parents’ house: an electric guitar made from a plank of wood. He kept building guitars this way for about five years, untill he decided to take it to the next level and took lessons from renowned guitar builders in the UK and the USA. What followed was an apprenticeship at the Galloup School of Guitarmaking in Michigan, USA. In 2009 he was hired as a guitar builder by Patrick James Eggle Guitars in Oswestry, UK, where he made guitars for artists like Frank Turner, Dave Hill and Gareth Pearson. He left Eggle in 2013 is now based in the Netherlands where he runs De Haan Guitars as well as the Dutch School of Guitarmaking. In 2018, Frank de Haan founded a second brand called Stoney Creek guitars in collaboration with Ruben van der Kleij.

The Flash

Saw this beautiful guitar made at a luthier school near where I live. It inspired me to want to be a luthier once I get out of high school, so I though I'd share it. Not a brand, a privately made custom, but still a beautiful guitar nonetheless. Got the picture off the school's website, here: http://www.mountainviewluthierschool.com/BNMountainviewOriginal.php .

Fender Van Halen

Big hair, diveboming tremolos and ferocious finger tapping: it all began with 80's guitar master Eddie Van Halen. At the recent NAMM 2007 show Eddie announced a new licensing deal with Fender.

As an introduction to a line of upcoming Van Halen products. The Fender custom show reproduced 300 copies of Eddie's legendary Frankenstrat red and white. The replicas feature every scratch and dent of the original, according to Fender. All sold out within 15 minutes, even with a price tag of $25000!
