About Us

 Since 1978 Rarebird has made thousands of handmade guitars and basses both acoustic and electric. I started as an apprentice in 1974 and my mother gave that nickname "Rarebird "as a youngster.


We'll be glad to help you create your dream instrument from Basses and handmade guitars. We also build Mandolins and Banjo's!


Average build time from 6 months in which you can spread out payments up to 2 years or what fits your budget. We offer several standard models which 200 are generally roughed in for a faster build. These standard models can still have custom neck shape and control placement and stain colors.  Look forward to doing custom guitars business with you.
