How Much is a Martin Custom Shop Guitar?

Pricing for Martin Custom Shop guitars can vary widely depending on the complexity of customizations. Prices can range from $2,000 to over $50,000. The best way to get an accurate cost for your Martin Custom Guitar is to request a quote through Instrumental Music Thousand Oaks.

In general, every spec change will have an impact on pricing. The higher you go with the style number (18, 28, 45, etc.) for your base model, the higher the price. Adding pearl inlay will increase the price. And the type of wood can also impact the overall cost of a custom. For example: a custom guitar with rosewood will naturally be more expensive than one with standard mahogany. But you don't have to worry about all of that. Instrumental Music Thousand Oaks can help you navigate the selection process to build you the guitar you want at the price that works for you.
