Contact Me to begin the process of ordering your instrument. I will then schedule a meeting with you in person (when possible), by phone, email or tele-conferencing–whatever you prefer. We will begin the process by discussing playing style, ergonomics, aesthetics, materials etc. related to your custom build.
An engagement fee of 20% of the value of the instrument to cover time, materials will guarantee your slot in my production list. This is non-refundable. The remainder of the payment will be due upon completion of the instrument prior to shipping.
My instruments include a limited lifetime warranty for any defects or issues on the craftsmanship as long as I am a professional luthier. It does not cover damage due to improper storage, modifications, handling or mis-use. The warranty covers the original purchaser of the instrument and is non-transferrable.
Shipping and handling will be determined after completion of the instrument. Carriers will be determined by criteria such as appropriate insurance, storage conditions, and availability and may vary by geographical location. The client is responsible for any or all shipping expenses, international tax, tariff or custom fees including import/export regulation (eg CITIES).
“So happy to have picked up this beauty from Nathaniel Rich the other day! It’s a real masterpiece. As soon as I played it, I knew this puppy was going to seriously affect my (already greatly diminished) social life…. because now all I want to do is practice ????. Thanks Nathaniel, I’ve been searching for an axe like this for some time.”
“I love the balance, projection, and sweet tone I get out of my Hollis-Rich guitar. There is a robust sound, yet it maintains the ability to get a wide range of colors, making it suitable for many performing situations.”
