Kal-Tone Custom Guitars


Since 1998, Ry Charters has made a wide variety of custom guitars; traditional acoustics, lap steels, resonators, Gibson and Fender variations, and custom designs. We still offer custom designed guitars with an approximate wait time of 6-8 months.

Our standard models are built in small batches with custom options, and are more readily available with a build time of 2-3 months. We occasionally have completed instruments available as well.

We do not use premade parts. Most of our wood in hand selected from a local lumber mill. We wind our own pickups, make our own pickguards, and spray our own finishes. We also design all of our guitars in 3D CAD software, and run a small CNC router to make our own precision tooling.
