How it Works

Fill out an order form

Let us know who you are and what your timezone is so that Oliver can arrange a video call with you.

If you already have specs in mind, feel free to fill those out, too!

Have a video chat with Oliver

In your one-on-one video call with Oliver we’ll talk about the guitar, answer any of your questions and discuss exactly what you’re looking for.

We’ll determine your full spec and discuss any customisation options you have in mind.

Visualise your spec choices

From there, we produce computer renders to show you how a guitar with your exact specs will look.

Approve your final guitar design

Once you are totally happy, and have made a US $2,000 deposit, we’re good to go.

Get build updates at milestones

We’ll send you pictures from the workshop so you can watch your guitar come to life.

Make some music!

When your custom Rubato Lassie is complete, we will invoice you for the balance and ship your guitar out as soon as we’ve received payment.
