Most of our manufacturing is small batch production of
five to twenty units.
Guitars are made somewhere between one and five at a time,
depending on what they are, so Acoustics are built virtually
one a time out of parts that have been machined in small batches
whilst we may make ten or twenty electric bolt on necks at
a time , then finish off and fret them in smaller lots as
The NC Machine we
built in the late '80s is ideal for this small batch
work and gives us the best of both worlds - the efficiency
and accuracy of NC machining, with the pleasure and
quality of one-off making.
The machine brings in other work for us such as processing
fingerboards for other makers, building Lap Steel blanks
for a wholesaler or making a one-off trophy (see image)
and so on.
