For a set price of $12,500, Jim will accomodate most requests. The current wait time for custom orders is approximately 9 months. This price includes your choice of a wide variety of optional woods and appointments, including abalone treatments. Premium options, such as Brazilian rosewood, or highly customized inlays could add to the cost. Visit the Guitar Models page for model specifications and theGuitar Photos section for pictures of some of the many possible options. Contact Jim by phone for the latest information on prices, availability, and wait time.
It is Jim's hope to produce a number of guitars made to his liking, using options and woods that satisfy his creative imagination. These "spec" guitars would then be offered for sale on the Available Instruments page. It is also possible that from time to time a "used" Olson may show up for sale. Check here to see if anything is currently available.
