Introducing: the Custodian

The Old School Dome 'Custodian' is a guitar featuring special woods and inlay. Over the past 40 + years Daniel has been collecting rare woods from around the world with the idea of making guitars with day. Well, in the year 2019, that day has come................ some of the woods date back to the time when Daniel was building classical guitars. These woods are eminently suited to make nylon string archtop jazz guitars, specifically the Old School Dome.

The way the special guitars are distinguished by adding the word 'Custodian' to the model name as in Old School Dome Custodian.  'Custodian' in the meaning of

a person or organization that is responsible for protecting, caring for, or maintaining something or someone

Waiting List.

Due to demand and work load, all Dome guitar orders received in 2019 will have a 1,5 year wait time; delivery will be in 2020.

Guitars made without order are sometimes available and will then appear on the website; an opportunity to avoid the waiting list. Please feel free to check the Stock list on the site to see what is available.
