Octavia-wide neck - love it. I play better on the Octavia guitar compared to an electric-acoustic. The pressure on strings can be soft and it sounds great.

The guitar is absolutely beautiful, the craftsmanship is second to none. The instrument was well worth the wait. I'll be a customer for life! Several setbacks outside of Halo guitars control led to a long build time. Not a big deal given the overall complexities of crafting a completely custom instrument. Upfront communication and updates from the company would have been nice. That being said, Jeff was prompt in responding and was always helpful.

Ordered a V. Faster turn around time would be awesome but waiting for a superior product is well understood. Would I recommend Halo to a friend? Yes

WOW thatzSo WOW!!! The guitar of my dreams is being born :) Some behavior not work... like the 8 string fanned and would be nice to have a wider cutaway to access the 27th frets on a scalloped fretboard. No visible Luminlay®. Side Markers to. The 3-ways toggle button should be at the top, near the neck, or it would be better to move any contrôles to the place we want.
I put in attachment the image of a guitar that I try to do with the Archtop Guitars Customization Tool.
I want to say in addition that this tool is really very impressive, and that it must continue in that way.
Really a big thank you Halo Guitars.

I absolutely love this guitar! I just received it a little over a week ago and ever since I plugged it in, I haven't wanted to put it down. Not only does the guitar sound absolutely amazing, the design and all the little details done to it are perfect! I own a few guitars, but none of them even compare to this one! If anybody was looking into buying the best quality, I'd only recommend Halo. If you're seriously thinking about purchasing a guitar from Halo, do it!

Very happy with the bass I received. It took approximately 11 months to receive but given the price and that they are fully custom instruments, it doesn't bother me at all. My only constructive criticism would be for more realistic build time estimates; though I do understand not everything always goes as planned. All in all, I would recommend to a friend and I'll definitely come back for my next custom.

It is without a doubt, the best guitar I have ever played. This is over 33 years of playing.
I didn't get specific about the neck dimensions when I placed the order and was wondering if I'd regret it. Turns out it is absolutely perfect.
The finish although quite different from the pic, was a nice surprise. Like how the spalted maple with the whitewashing type of finish brought out a faint aqua blue.
The EverTune bridge feels nice too.
The two minor things that I would have liked is the back plate be routed into the body like the one for the controls and that I thought the spalted maple would also be on the headstock as well . No big deal though as I'm more about the playability and the function.

7 string basses would be awesome. More colours, bursts, shapes, inlays and woods would be very cool too, along with more fret count options, including 26, 30, etc. Image is a Warwick Streamer LX #16-3141

I received my guitar a couple days ago and I can’t say enough good things about it. It’s hands down the best guitar I’ve ever played. You guys didn’t miss a thing! I’ve played guitar for many years and I’ve never played one of this quality. Thank you so much for all the hard work! I love the guitar so much, I plan to sell a few of my others and order another from Halo in the next few weeks. (Promise I’ll be less of a pain this time)

Congratulations and keep working guys!

I ordered my first custom electric guitar with slight reluctance from a company I had never heard of in California. Wondering what the outcome would be and whether my order was ever going to get done was the question for the next few months. It was when I received my guitar in the mail and opened the case that it sent a shock wave of excitement through me. All the months of waiting were well worth the investment for a halo guitar. I couldn't have wished for a better instrument after playing around with it from the amazing inlay work, to the buckethead arcade killswitch and especially the playability of the instrument. Jeff Lee deserves standing ovation as this company provides superlative service meeting all your needs and problems. I will be a customer for life. I would recommend Halo to a friend. Improvements for Halo would be in wait time and painting.

Custom-Made Tenor Guitar; it's freaking awesome. It's great to know that I have a one-of-a-kind guitar that is truly built to suit my needs as a guitarist. I'd recommend Halo to a friend. It might be helpful to avail a side-view option for guitar previews... Might you consider availing resonator guitar options in the future?

I ordered a custom Merus 7. The craftsmanship is exponentially greater than any guitar I've purchased thus far. Everything was well done and worth the wait. I don't know how everything works in the process... and what exactly is on your plate, but I think reduced waiting time might improve your sales, because I know that I personally may not ever buy a factory guitar again. Primarily because the quality of the guitar is great and I am picky and don't like modifying factory guitars anymore because you start with imperfection anyway. Reduced wait, greatly encourages me to re-purchase!

Was searching for a bass custom shop on google. I ordered a bass and I love it! Halo can improve by giving a little more info during the build on the instrument.

A while ago I said "Really good, but needs more choices on wood, and needs to be cheaper. There should also be a couple more headstock shapes similar to Demon. Other than that it's really good." Now there are more choices for the wood, and the'rye really cool, but it should still be cheaper, and maybe a couple more headstock shapes like Demon. Thanks again! It's really cool and fun.

I just got to sit down and play it for a couple hours last night, and I absolutely love it. I was a bit surprised to find that one of the pots is really sticky and hard to turn from like 0-40% on. After that it works well, but it definitely surprised me that a hand made guitar would have this type of flaw. Other than that, it's just about everything I've ever wanted in a guitar. Im absolutely loving it though, already recorded with it and it sounds fantastic.

Great Guitar! The service was especially great too! they did everything they could to fully accommodate me and made sure that I was satisfied. Guitar is beautiful and immaculate, plays tight and crisp. Percussive when I want it, and sweet when I want it.

This is the best customization tool for guitars on the internet! Despite saying that, I still think there are things that need to be added. A 'regular' SG shape would be really awesome. An Ibanez Iceman styled guitar would also be very appreciated. The scale length getting longer when you change it in the option would be nice. A way to save your custom builds or get some sort of overview of the ones that you have made would be very helpful, as a student I have very limited funds and am currently saving for a custom guitar and it is hard to keep track of exactly whats what. Some more colours and possibly a swirl option would be absolutely beautiful. Finally, some more headstock shapes would be greatly welcomed, especially since the removal of the Fender styled headstocks (which if it's possible, would be a great addition). Can't wait until the day I can finally afford one!
