We take pride in making the best guitars you will ever play. Everything from replica guitars of your favorite musicians to custom builds to NOS models to one-off custom art pieces. We also perform aging services that will transform your guitar into a lightly used closet guitar to a nightly used workhorse and everything in between. We have revised our website to bring you a more focused experience. Simply let us know what you want and we will make it happen! Simple as that! We use the highest quality wood that come from highly respected dealers. We do not use genuine Fender bodies or necks. Not only does it keep the prices down by using legal replacement parts, it also gives us the opportunity to order the body or neck exactly to your specifications! By entering this site you acknowledge that mclguitars.com is not affiliated with Fender Musical Instruments Corp in any way.

$75 worldwide shipping on guitars applies to all countries with a 108 max USPS Priority Mail ship dimension. If your country differs form a 108 max Priority Mail shipping size limit the $75 worldwide shipping may not apply. i.e. Australia’s max size limit for USPS priority mail is 79 inches which is smaller than a guitar case so it would not apply. Shipping to australia has to be done by USPS express which costs a different amount than the said $75.
