Custom Guitars - Madagascar Rosewood Sedona

Custom Guitars are my life's undivided obsession.

Custom Guitar maker Brock PolingLike you, I am enchanted with the acoustic guitar. Custom guitars occupy nearly every waking thought I have and I am passionate about building the finest instrument possible. No detail is too small to sweat, or no length too great to go to build an instrument that I will be proud of and one you will treasure.

I work closely with each client helping to define your specific interests, goals, and aesthetic preferences then I build custom guitars that are individually suited to your personal requirements. This is a hands-on process; it is not simply placing an order, choosing the tonewoods you want and waiting. I spend a lot of time talking to clients, learning about your playing habits, prioritizing what is important to you, and making you an integral part of the building process. Commissioning custom guitars is a special event and one that should be participatory. I find that there is a special magic between musician and luthier which often leads to a lasting bond and friendship.

"My Poling guitar is fantastic! Not only is it stunning to look at, but the sound is rich and warm. I couldn't have asked for a better match for my singing voice."
