Tonecaster series

NGS Besoke Guitar series

Bespoke, one-off guitars with a common theme for unique, unleashed vibrant sounds, beauty and playability. There are no gimmicks here.


Every body and every neck has a life of its own and the parts fitted to them are done so over a period of 3 months. This is what we term the knowing time. Getting to know and feel the instrument, what it needs and what will work within it’s framework and energy.

One pick-up will work like butter in one body but be a dud in another. That’s why we give it extra in order to distill the best combination of working parts.

Intonation of the body and headstock is a delicate process which includes the cleaning lines, contouring of roll offs, use of shellac, refining a snug neck pocket.

The choice of bridge, saddles, nut, machines and pick-ups continually discussed and considered during the 3 month period.

If it takes longer… it will be the making of the sound Shifter.
