We just looked at the price for a boutique Strat style guitar... GOOD GOD Y'ALL 


Let's build the exact same premium guitar for only $2599!


Matt & Chris know for a fact that we can teach you to build a classic Strat style guitar in a week. Then we thought that we could use EXACTLY the same woods and hardware that the boutique guitar builders use. Hell, we can use BETTER hardware & materials and you can be there to see your new guitar be born

What we couldn't figure out is why those guitars cost close to $9000 dollars? Given all of our contacts in this industry, it was pretty much a no brainer to offer a comprehensive guitar building experience that cannot get anyplace else.

Now, Check This Out...

Start With Excellence the very first day With Steve McElhenny at Maximum Guitar Works.  Steve offers OEM Factory Services to companies you have, no doubt, heard of, meaning that your guitar will be exactly like some of the guitars built by the big-name boutique builders. Of course, you get to choose your own body & neck woods. These guitars are made using scans and the exact specifications from an actual 1957 Stratocaster thanks to our buddy Jim Jamm Jimmy. Not a reproduction, but the genuine article.
