Prices

Ordering Process:

We are currently accepting new orders once again. Please feel free to drop us an email inquiry or give us a call.

After your $500 [non-refundable] deposit is received your name is placed on our waiting list. Your $500 deposit will be applied to the total price of your completed guitar. After we receive your deposit we will give you an estimate when to expect delivery of your McKnight Guitar. We will be in email contact, prior to beginning your guitar build and also throughout the building process.

Digital Diary: We offer our customers a digital diary of the entire building process. Mary will take pictures during the build and email them to you at least on a weekly basis. We offer this free service for our customers so you can be involved in the conception through delivery of your new guitar.

Return Policy: After you receive your guitar you have a 3 day acceptance period. If you are not totally satisfied with your new guitar you may return it, for a full refund (minus ALL shipping costs), if the guitar is returned in "AS NEW" condition. However, if there are any unique features, sound port or inlay work which would render the guitar difficult to resell then the return policy is null and void.

Below is a list of our current price structure. Items marked "No Charge" are included in the standard base price. Other options are available and will be charged accordingly, over and above the base price.
