Details About Purchasing a JeSt Guitar
I make guitars because I love doing it. There is obviously a limit to how many I
can or should keep for myself (my wife still doesn’t understand why I need more than
one). So I choose to sell most of the guitars I make. Since I make so few guitars,
I tend to be choosey about who I want to sell to. I want to feel good about who is
playing my guitars. I don’t have a price list; my pricing structure is flexible and
based upon a few basic principles:
- I recognize that I am not (yet) famous and can not command top dollar.
- Even if I could command top dollar, I won’t get rich making and selling guitars a
few at a time.
- I need to charge enough to support my habit (I am speaking of the guitar building
- I would like my guitars to be making beautiful music – given my limitations as a
player, putting my guitars in the hands of competent musicians is likely to be my
primary musical contribution to the world.
- I want to give the working musician a break.
I will from time to time post guitars in my inventory that I am willing to sell.
Some of the guitars pictured in my photo gallery are ones that I have kept for myself.
If you see something you like in my photo gallery, let me know. If it is one I own,
I may be willing to sell it. Otherwise, I can certainly make something like it for
you. If you have something else in mind, I may be able and willing to make that as
I believe that I can offer an excellent value for a custom, hand crafted guitar.
However, please keep in mind that these are custom, hand crafted guitars. If you
want a cheap guitar, please go to your local Guitar Center; I make no attempt to
compete with them. However, my prices are very competitive with the high end factory
models, and you will be the only person on your block with a JeSt guitar.
