The current waiting period is: 16 months
Milan Ciz Guitars are individually hand crafted in a one man shop. And for that reason, I’m limited to build approximately 10 guitars per year. I personally handcraft every guitar and I assure that every instrument is of the highest quality and crafted with plus 20 years of skills .
If you are able to come to my shop, I’ll be pleased to show you my available woods, body styles, bracing options, neck sizes, inlays, pickups, etc. to make your guitar the right instrument for you. We can use your playing style, physical characteristic, playing venues and personal preferences as benchmarks to discuss the elements of tone, playability, intonation, aesthetics, and volume.
If you are not in the area of Slovakia or can't stop by, I will work with you by e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +421 907 138 to help you pick out your woods, and discuss any options you'd like.
Once we have an agreement, I will ask for non-refundable 10% down payment to hold your place in my schedule.
The waiting period for custom orders is approximately 12 to 16 months when I'll start working on your guitar.
You will only be added to the schedule when I receive the down payment.
Shortly before your turn comes, I will contact you and we will confirm the agreement and details of the ordered guitar. If you wish to continue at that time I will ask for an additional 40% to proceed.
After the materials are ordered you can still make changes but if changes are made, you could be charged for additional materials and the materials that were ordered and not used (exceptions apply to items that I commonly use).
During the building process I will be contacting you to approve details. And I will send you photos of the work in progress. If you live near my shop you can come to see the progress or just look at the building process. Wait times for full custom projects are determined on project basis.
When the guitar is completed I will contact you and ask for the final payment plus any shipping charges and taxes that should be apply.
Prices currently start at 1200 € ($1800 USD) for electric guitars, for flat tops 1200 € ($1800 USD) and 1900 € ($2900 USD) for arch tops. Custom ordered guitars will be subject to the pricing in effect at the time construction begins.
