Custom builds

For me to build you a custom instrument, the essential element is for me to understand your requirements fully. We can start this process either by having a conversation on the phone, or by you coming to the workshop to try guitars and start to develop the brief for your own custom instrument. Using the models in my range as a starting point, along with our brief, I guarantee to build you a highly crafted unique instrument. For a full list of options, please email me at  rorydowling@taranguitars.co.uk

Limited editions

Every year, I build a limited run of two types of instruments, the Oreval Guitar and the Springwell Mandolin. Both of these high end instruments have been developed in the Taran Guitars workshop over the past three years. While material and detailing choices are limited, these instruments go through the same high quality build process as any Taran Guitars instrument.

Payment structure

On all instruments, I ask for a non-refundable deposit of £350 ($450). This secures your place in the order book and protects you from any future price increases. 

Making an instrument of this quality takes time. Generally, there is a 19 month waiting time. However, this may increase at times.

When I start to build your instrument, I ask for the second payment, which is half of the remaining total. When your instrument is ready for collection or shipment, I ask for the final balance.

Taran Guitars Guarantee

I am committed to delivering high quality service and products. In my time as an instrument maker, I have built instruments for people all over the world. All of my clients have been delighted. If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your Taran Guitars instrument, please tell me immediately and organise to have the instrument returned to me. When I have received the instrument, I will either build you another instrument, or refund you, less deposit and shipping costs.
