I had the opportunity to talk with two really great guys tonight, both pro players. We're putting together some really cool builds for these guys, stuff I wouldn't have even considered. It's really rewarding to be able to take the ideas of working musicians and design a guitar with them. I am enormously thankful to Darin and Andrew for taking a chance with us and allowing us to build guitars for them.

Work has started on our shop expansion in beautiful downtown Troy, NY. Converting this old auditorium into shop and assembly space.
We'll have even more shop and spraying capabilities, as well as the necessary space needed to operate our new venture into string making.
Our plans are to have regular guitar building and repair workshops to open to the public in spring. Watch this space, and as always, Enjoy Troy!

The Nitro has settled on our next batch of necks and we're assembling some Strats tonight. Of course, we can't call them that... How about some suggestions? Keep in mind the whole nautical/sailor tattoo style we're copping. If we use your suggestion we'll praise you on our page with a weeks worth of made-up facts honoring you like a North Korean Dictator.

A mock up we did of the our test neck on a finished body. We were just meaning to test some pickups with some hardware we had laying around the shop, but a lot of people seem to like it. What do you think?

General information

Tone Bird offers custom built guitars as an alternative to the standard models available. Customers can select colors and materials not available on production guitars. Our guitars are classic and affordable and we don't rely on gimmicks to set ourselves apart. We concentrate on what makes a guitar play and sound like its vintage counterparts while keeping the price well bellow the average custom shop. Our standard models are based on the classic designs from Fullerton California from the 50's and 60's. Every Component on the guitar was chosen with regards to how it suits the design aesthetically and how it performs in a modern setting. That means we may not have the cold-rolled-chryogenic-frozen bridge people are talking about this week, but we have a high quality vintage correct model with improvements made for modern strings. Our staff and contributors are certified repairmen, professional luthiers, shop owners, and sessions players, so we never compromise in what goes on or into a model. We make the best decision based on what is available without concentrating too much on what products are creating the most buzz. We are very proud of what we build, and we are thrilled to be able to offer it for a very reasonable price. Give us a call or a message and let us know what we call build for you. Regards, Team Tone
