We are increasing some of our prices for certain items on our website. We have become extremely busy making pickups and other items for sale within our store as we would expect at this time of year and this has had a knock on effect regarding our custom build service.
Bottom line is , if i have to dedicate time to making them, i must charge an adequate rate.

I have realised that offering such a large variation on the Charlie Christian Pickup range has caused a lot of confusion.
Also, the different brand name is confusing issues and so l have decided to drop the BAYTONE name and just market them under John Anthony Guitars as JAG pickups.
The range has been cut, simplified and over the next few days, new pickups and a simple one spec approach will be applied.
In the meantime, l will sell off all of the old Baytone stock at a massive discount so take a look at the CLEARANCE ITEM PAGE in our store after 8 pm this evening and grab a bargain!
The new pickups will sound exactly the same but will be easier to distinguish and nicer to look at!
We have been subsidising shipping costs almost from day one. In the last few months postal charges have risen to such an extent that we have had no choice but to increase our charges in line with recent increases.
We are currently making the required changes but this may take a day or two before all of the website descriptions tally.
Sincere apologies but we have to make a living like everyone else!
This instrument has been made over the last 12 months or so, fitting in between plan and pickup production especially for and Tailored exactly for Kevin Brown.
Kevin had a very exacting and quite challenging brief to create a very unique lapsteel that converts from a twin neck to two individual 7 string steels in seconds.
Every item on this steel is bespoke. The pickups for example are concealed within the body with only the blade close to the strings and a slim lipstick cover. They are custom wound in heavy, low impedance copper and sound huge and warm.
The Scale markings and decoration are custom created decals based on a National steel design that Kevin provided (he sent me the Fretboard from his own instrument!)
Nut and saddle are Silverised brass, controls CTS and Switchcraft, Kluson Tuners complete the design.
Its unique to Kevin and l am pleased to say that he likes it!
