As a musician myself, I have an appreciation for all styles of music and I’m constantly searching for new ways to combine perfect tone and aesthetic design into my instruments.
LT Custom Guitars are created using only the finest exotic timbers, tone-woods and resin hybrids. Every element is hand crafted, resulting in bespoke instruments of the highest quality. Everything on our guitars can be customised, so if you want specific hardware, a fully carved top, custom finish or perhaps even an unusual shape, it can all be created just for you.
Instrument prices start from just £1599.99, less than you would often pay for an off-the-peg ‘me too’ guitar. With lead times of currently around 6 weeks for a fully custom build and 2 weeks for a batch production ‘Pioneer‘ model, you’re less than 2 months away from making the dream of playing your very own custom, handmade guitar a reality.
Every LT Custom Guitar comes with a certificate of authenticity and Hiscox hard case. You can upgrade this to a customisable Artur Benedykt handmade hard case for an additional fee.

As soon as I picked up the Pioneer guitar, I knew it was ‘the one.’ The guitar itself is stunningly beautiful. The natural finish is timeless and the level of craftsmanship is nothing less than perfection. On top of being aesthetically pleasing, it has the best sound of any guitar I’ve heard! You don’t even need to plug it in – it is so resonant and bright on its own! It is the guitar of my lifetime and I look forward to playing it for many years to come.

From meeting Lewis at his showcase at bedrock music and trying out his builds I knew I needed one. We soon came up with an incredible build that surpasses anything I thought was possible. The guitar looks and sounds killer, with the best necks I have ever played! Choosing individual timbers for the body and neck is a fantastic service, and paired with great hardware choices led to this amazing guitar.

“I’d like to say thanks to Lewis at LT Custom Guitars for fixing me up with this amazing Classic T Jr. From the first moment I held it, I knew right then it was the guitar for me! It’s incredibly light weight, responsive and the sustain goes on and on. It really is a pleasure to play and I can’t recommend LT Custom Guitars highly enough. If you’re in the market, or even just thinking about a custom guitar, then be sure to check them out!”

“LT Custom Guitars gave me the freedom to customise my bass to my exact specification. It’s the lightest bass I’ve played with a unique shape and quality wood. Lewis gave me the opportunity to select everything from wood, neck length, fingerboard and hardware and was ready to assist with his broad range of knowledge whenever I needed. Lewis is a master of sound and selected the exact pickups for the sound I wanted and brought everything together to create my one of a kind bass guitar. I’ve already discussed ordering my next one with him. Always go custom and never go back!”

Model Owned: Classic ‘S’ Thinline – Left Handed
“I had the pleasure of meeting Lewis of LT Custom Guitars at the Bristol Guitar Show and was very impressed by the looks (the photographs don’t do the guitar justice) and the build quality of the guitars on display. I was invited to try a left handed chambered bodied guitar that was equipped with 2 single coils and a P90 in the neck. I was very impressed with the playability of the guitar and the wide range of tones that the instrument produced.
I was equally impressed by Lewis’ knowledge and craftsmanship regarding the tonal properties of different woods and what makes a truly great guitar. To say that this guitar is very special is an understatement. Owning something that’s one of a kind is always special! Thanks Lewis!”

Model Owned: Classic S Carved Top
“From the moment I picked up the ‘Classic S’ the custom paint job shone and the the stunning carved top really grabbed my eye, and that was before I even played a note on it!
What really blew me away was the incredible range of tonal capability, once plugged in the guitar went from screaming lead to crystal clear, and literally everything between. Live, this beauty looks and plays amazing, I am so excited to start my collection! 100% can not recommend LT Custom Guitars enough!”

“A massive thank you to LT Custom Guitars for providing a top notch service and enabling me to finally own my dream guitar. Everything provided in the service could not be faulted or be more professional.
From the initial communication regarding design, through to wood choice, neck profile, hardware options and down to the final fine tuning to get it setup perfectly was second to none. This guitar plays so well it is unreal. If anyone is considering purchasing a custom guitar, I would highly recommend LT Custom Guitars.”
