Options

I provide a variety of hardware and other options that are high quality, will last a lifetime and are known to provide the classic tones that you are after! They are also engineered along with the design of the guitar to fit perfectly.

Bridge

The bridge is one of the most important pieces of hardware on a guitar. Essential to the in tune playing (intonation) across the entire fretboard of the instrument, as well as very influential in the visual elements of the guitar. 

We offer several options to tailor the visuals without sacrificing the quality of the instrument. These are are high quality parts sourced for their contribution to tone while being visually appealing with my designs.

This hardware can be nickel, chrome, or custom aged hardware to match the build  you are specifying.

Tuners

Along with the bridge, tuners are really important for tuning stability and aesthetics of your guitar! 

Again, we offer several tried and true options to tailor the visuals without sacrificing the quality of the instrument. These are are high quality parts sourced for their contribution to tone while being visually appealing with my designs.

We offer only locking tuners because of their tuning stability - and - ease of string change - which are important to both gigging and garage band musicians!

Pickups

The pickups in a guitar contribute to a large part of the sound an electric guitar. The wood and construction will give it natural sustain, but the pickups and amp will give it the character for the type of music you want to play. These all get you classic tones you have heard thousands of times.

 

We offer several options to tailor the sound and visuals while providing maximum flexibility in the type of music that can be played. These are are high quality pickups sourced for their contribution to tone while being visually appealing with my designs.

This hardware can be nickel, chrome, or custom aged hardware to match the build  you are specifying.

Violette Custom CNC 
Inlay

I design and make all of my own inlay in 3D modelling software and production is with CNC and the highest quality materials like ABS, acrylic, and real mother of pearl (MOP).

My crown inlays look familiar but the design is custom and leaves more visibility of the Honduran Rosewood fretboards I make.

I can custom design and manufacture custom inlay for your Violette guitar at extra charge.
