DUE TO OUR VERY LONG BACKLOG - CUSTOM ORDERS HAVE BEEN CLOSED.
Sorry for any inconvenience. Dano - 1/15/19
Q: “ Hey , these look great !! How can I get one ?
A: They currently are selling only thru LA Vintage Gear in Los Angeles and Amelia Island Fine Guitars in Florida
Q: “Do you have any in stock ? Or is there a waiting list ? "
A : Sorry - we are only making a couple a week and we immediately ship them out to our 2 dealers
Q: Is there any way you can take a direct custom order from me ?
A: I need to just say thanks but I cant. If I took one from everybody who's asked - my waitlist would unbearable for everybody involved. Really Sorry
Q: “I forgot to mention that I’m famous - or at least I’m about to be. Can I get a free guitar ? Or an artist endorsement”
A: First off, congrats on all your success !! It’s great to be paid for doing something you love , isn’t it ? I feel the same way :)
Q: “ ok ok.. I get it. It was worth a try. BTW - I don’t live in USA - do you ship internationally ?
A: Yes - Both Amelia Island and LA Vintage will ship worldwide
Q: “ Hmmm.. I’m pretty eager to get one. Do you have dealers that have them in stock ?
A: Both dealers try to keep a selection of used - as well as my NEWEST - Danocasters in stock. Check with them
Q: “ OK so…. if I promise to keep it on the down-low - can you gimme a Fender headstock and logo ?”
A: There isn’t enough money in your bank acct to get me to do that - even if you are about to be famous !! Sorry - no can do
Q: “ I bought a custom guitar-and I love but it doesn’t look as good as your stuff. Can I send it to you ? “
A: Sure !! But only if you are giving it to me. I can’t do what I do starting w/ a “brand new” guitar. My process starts long before the finish goes on. Sorry
Q: “ Will you refinish my guitar ? “
A: Because we are so busy - we are only doing restoration finishes on ORIGINAL vintage Fenders. And even then - the body needs to arrive stripped and sanded smooth with 400 grit - so we can seal it and get on with it. The cost is usually about $400 and time is about 8 weeks. We don’t refinish or paint new or aftermarket bodies - TEMPORARILY ON HOLD
Q: “ Hey , will you sell me only a neck or body ? Do you sell any of your aged parts ?”
A: We spend a lot of time on them and really only offer them on complete Danocaster guitars. If we are refinishing an old guitar for you that’s missing parts - let’s talk
Q: “ OK.. before I pull the trigger - does anybody “famous” play your guitars ?
A: You mean - besides you ? Yep. Lots of guys slugging it out in clubs. Lots of guys in the studio trenches. Guys in P&W communities. Plus : Keith Urban (x3), Neal Schon (X3) , Rusty Anderson ( McCartney band )x2 , Walter Becker (X4) , Matt Scannell (x3) , John Shanks (x6) , Julian Lage , Rick Springfield (x2) , Val McCallum (x3) , Dean Parks , "Ready" Freddie Washington , and countless others
Q: “Dan , I know you’re really busy and all but…. wanna go fishing ?
A: YES !! let me grab my tackle
