Music Industry Testimonials

Kevin Sherwood

“I've used my Octavias for every single zombie song over the past decade. I'm going to have them buried with me.”

- Kevin Sherwood Senior Sound Designer & Composer Call of Duty, Treyarch
Stephen James Taylor

“This is a very complex (31 frets per octave) instrument with 4 pickups across 2 discrete 1/4 inch outs as well as a 13 pin guitar synth output. The combinations are endless. The staff at Halo did a great job at stepping up to meet a very challenging request. I love this guitar and can hardly put it down.”

- Stephen James Taylor Composer for film and TV scores with 4 Emmy and 2 Annie nominations

“You can't fake a passion for luthiery, a love for music, or a commitment to excellence… so we don't!”

- Jeff Lee, Halo Custom Guitars' General Manager

We are a guitar company through and through. In a typical month, we’ll be busy sketching guitar designs, sourcing raw woods and materials, creating all sorts of sawdust by building guitars from scratch, spraying guitars in our paint booth, and fine-tuning, testing, and playing our guitars prior to shipping them out to customers all around the world. We've made it fun, efficient and affordable for folks to design, purchase and play their very own pro-grade custom guitar.

Since 2004, we've been specializing in custom shop electric guitars (build to order), custom basses, fanned fret guitars, baritone guitars, 7-string guitars, 8-string guitars, 9-string guitars, 10-string guitars, left handed guitars, and professional luthier services. We are proud to offer a large selection of pickups ranging from our very own Halo pickups to EMG, DiMarzio, Seymour Duncan, Bare Knuckle, Lace, Aero, Nordstrand, Bartolini, Fishman, Lollar, and other boutique pickups. We equip our instruments with Floyd Rose, Kahler, Hipshot and Bigsby tremolo systems, and Tone Pros, Hipshot, ABM, Full Contact Hardware and in-house Halo fixed bridges. All Halo instruments are built with premium tone woods like Mahogany, Ash, Alder, Basswood, Maple, Rosewood, Ebony, and other exotic/rare woods such as Pao Ferro, Quilted/Flamed/Spalted/Bird's Eye Maple, Wenge, Cocobolo, Swamp Ash, Zebrawood, Black Limba, and much more. We offer virtually limitless options. Design your own custom guitar today.
