Ultimately, the process was about creating an instrument I could enjoy and play, and the guys at Shaw Guitars made the process a joy from start to finish.

For them, it was more than just building a guitar for a customer; it was connecting that instrument to me.

Rick has outdone himself with this one.  He absolutely nailed what I wanted in a light weight guitar that has a smooth fast neck with tone that reaches heaven.  This is my second Shaw Custom and until you have played one of his creations, you can't imagine what a real quality guitar is all about.  Rick does great work!

​"My Shaw Guitar is the most amazing guitar I have ever played.  After deciding it was time to finally own a custom guitar, I sat down with Rick and he walked me through the whole process, from start to finish.  I told him I wanted a Tele shape, but I wanted something very lightweight.  I love a super-thin neck and this one is micro thin--I've never played anything like it.  I picked out the quilted Maple top from an extensive collection of fine woods and the tone, playability and craftsmanship is outstanding!!  Thanks Rick for an outstanding instrument!

"If you can dream it, Rick can build it!  Its been years since I've played electric guitar.  I grew up loving to play but my role in Big Daddy Weave has always been primarily acoustic.  My Shaw guitar is the beginning of bridging the gap for me.  This amazing instrument will be an integral part of the music we'll be making in the near future and from here on out!"
