Custom Order Estimate Request Form

PLEASE READ: Fill out the form below with the desired specifications of the custom Mario Guitars model you would like to have built! A submitted custom build form is merely a request for an estimate and requires NO OBLIGATION of purchase. If you are unsure of a certain specification, just leave that field empty or type “not sure” and a Mario Guitars’ representative will gladly assist you with your choices.

A note for the less picky: If you are overwhelmed by technical specs and just want world class guitar that plays well — give us the basics (model & color) and let Mario do what he does best!

Want to get in line but worried you can’t afford it?  We make it easy and affordable for any budget. All you need is $500 up front(Non-Refundable), then you can make as many payments as you like during the course of the build, same as if you bought it in cash. No interest. No credit companies. No hassle. We ship the guitar when the balance has been taken care of. You can also simply put down the deposit, and not make any payments at all until the guitar is completed. Your choice, we’re easy!

“The Chef Knows Best” Disclaimer: Our first priority is making you a world-class, custom guitar just the way you want it. However, we owe it to ourselves, our past clients, and future players to maintain the Mario Guitars brand value for posterity.  

It is not always obvious upon order, but occasionally Mario will get to final assembly to realize that one specification might be just a bit off or may be counterintuitive to the brand image and level of excellence we hope to maintain. As such, Mario reserves the right to make minor modifications to spec sheets as he sees fit. 

These changes will never be major adjustments, and will ALWAYS be in the spirit of the original order with hopes of making you the best guitar that money can buy. Remember that Mario has spent the last 30 years in the luthiery industry, and over the past 18 years has built Mario Guitars into a legacy brand whose guitars will maintain value for generations to come.
