Here at the Roman Guitars Custom Shop we can build many types of guitars.  Our open options can extend all the way from simple choices on existing builds to truly unique and one of a kind instruments.  You can choose the build design you would like, the shape of the body, the woods that are to be used, electronic options, color and finish choices.  Just about anything you can think of we can do.

The custom shop work we do is not limited just our own instruments, we can work on another brand you purchase or even an instrument you supply.  Custom shop work could include modifications, repaints, refinishes, electronics and so much more,
