Hey guys,

I'm currently looking for a nice handbuilt guitar. Something along the lines of a super-strat, with floyd rose, humbuckers, etc. You guys know any small shop that could make me one?

I'm in Ontario but if they're willing to ship I wouldn't mind.

Cheers,

Save your cash and get a Liberatore. Very high end booteek quality, but they go for around a grand.

There is one right now in the classifieds. I don't think they get much better.

There are hundreds of talented luthiers across Canada. Probably nearly a hundred in Ontario alone. Any skilled luthier could do a build like that. A number of them are listed in our public directory, though the directory is still growing:
Luthier/Tech/Dealer Directory - Canada

Some (even those not listed in the directory) show off their work in our gallery (which includes their contact info). You can filter the gallery to show only professional builds and narrow it down to electric guitars to see a few.
Project Gallery - Next Gen Canada

Hope that helps!

If anyone knows any luthiers who could use more free exposure, send them over.

If it doesn't have to be Canadian, try Rondo's custom ordering. You could have it shipped to Watertown and go over and pick it up. There are many options and you would you would be in the $700.00 - $1000.00 CDN range.

Why are you telling him to buy an import guitar when the thread clearly states he wants Canadian? Why do you want his money out of the country?

He has the option to buy where he wants and he may save himself hundreds of dollars. His choice, your choice, everyone's choice.

Another guy that you could try is Scott Heatley at Heatley Guitars. I didn't think that he built this type, but was talking to him the other day and he told me that he has a shredder model thats not shown on the site.
