Custom Shop At The Music Zoo
If the time has come for you to grab your ultimate guitar - The Music Zoo showcases the custom shop pieces from all of your favorite brands to make your dreams come true! Once you've decided what specs, woods, and electronics compliment you the best as a player - you deserve a guitar or bass that caters to you. Whether you're looking for that perfect Fender Custom Shop Strat, Jazz Bass, or Tele, a golden-era inspired Martin 000 or dreadnought acoustic, a gorgeous and luxurious Taylor built-to-order custom, a Gibson '59 Burst reissue, or one of The Music Zoo's own custom shop creations from Jackson, Charvel and many others, we're the destination to grab that special piece.
Custom shop instruments represent the height of today's guitar builds. Often hand-crafted by the best luthiers in the world, they immediately feel special in your hands. Many would argue that today's custom shop guitars are just as good if not better instruments that some of the original examples they are inspired by, due to new technologies combined still with the magic and character of hand-building techniques. You'll find the best woods here - lightweight and resonant, or incredibly figured, whether you're eyeing that perfect flame bookmatch, or want to get lost inside that complex quilt top. And just like the "custom color" guitars of the 50s and 60s, you'll find some of the most
unique and rare finish colors on a modern custom shop guitar. If you're eyeing an electric, you could be in for some handwound pickup treats, that will make your guitar sound completely unique!
If you want your guitar to look and feel like it's been played, you don't want to miss our relic and aged selection, especially the Zoo exclusive Fender Ultimate Relic guitars, or our Nitro Aged San Dimas guitars. And we always have a plethora of special Martins and Taylors, with plenty of pearl and visual appeal, equaling their impressive tonal character. Even some of your favorite artist model instruments have been elevated to Custom Shop status!
