This custom headless guitar was designed, engineered, and built-to-order for a customer. It is truly one of a kind and boasts a stunning combination of high-end features/components. 

Check out that body shape! The shape was originally sketched up by the customer and we were able to bring it to life after making some minor design tweaks to allow for better fret access and construction. 

The guitar is a 7-piece Maple/Walnut neck through body design with Mahogany body wings and a Spalted Maple Top. 

The guitar is equipped with a DiMarzio Mo' Joe in the bridge position, a Lace Alumitone Single Coil in the middle position, and a DiMarzio PAF Pro in the neck position.

We installed CTS pots and a Schaller 5-way Megaswitch to offer a wide variety of high-end tones. 


At the headstock side, we installed the "Technology For Musicians" string locks. These little string locks are made in Italy and are great for their versatility. 

The J Custom XS Tremolo II was the bridge of choice. Here's a closeup shot of the J Custom XS Tremolo II

With the neck through construction, we were able to build the instrument with a steep cutaway to allow for unhindered upper fret access.

@bill - the J Custom is not a trans-trem as far as I know. It is just a conventional trem that can be a direct drop-in replacement for the trans-trems. Thanks!

Hello, kudos for the great work. I'd be very interested in ordering something along the lines of your 'custom headless', albeit in 7 strings. Can I get a quote from you for such Frankenstein?. What would be the delivery dates? best regards - Pablo

*** HALO ADMIN RESPONSE: Hi Pablo - we've sent you an email with more detailed information, but yes, we can build you a 7-string version! Thanks ***

I love the custom headless guitar you feature but would it be possible to get this with 8 strings and maybe EMG active pickups? How do I actually go about purchasing it?

*** HALO ADMIN RESPONSE: This body shape design was provided to us by our customer and so we'd ask permission to build an 8-string version of it. But, yes, it's possible to build you an 8-string headless with EMG's. To place an order, we'd just have to figure out the total price of the guitar, and then you can pay a minimum 50% deposit. Any final balance due can be paid immediately before shipping/delivery. Thanks! ***

Hey, I am interested in a rectangular guitar body unfinished with a headless neck...as light as possible...what kind of price would I be looking at? I plan on a custom paint job... Thanks,

HALO ADMIN RESPONSE: Pricing starts at $1199 for our custom guitars. For a custom body shape, it is $150 extra because we need to create new routing templates. However, we do not warranty our unfinished necks. Depending on the full specs, the price may increase. Thanks! - Jeff Lee, Halo
