USA Custom Shop


How to Order Your Custom Willcox

We created the USA custom shop to give players the option of configuring their own personalized LightWave Powered Instruments with premium tonewoods, variable hardware options, and a larger variety of finishes not currently available in our standard production models. See the steps below to guide you through the ordering processes before filling our Custom Shop Configurator form. Each custom order request will receive a one on one consultation and detailed estimate before undergoing production. Since each order is custom built in California to your exact specifications, production can take up to 12-16 weeks.
