Model OS14

The Model OS14 is an original design offset bodied guitar. It is similar in construction, dimensions and tone to the Model R17. The biggest difference being that the R17 is a more traditional non offset body design while the OS14 is offset and a bit different of a body design all around. The OS14 is semi hollow with no solid body or chambered versions. The semi hollow design utilizes a 4" center block, 1/2" thick sides and 1/4" thick top and back. The Model OS14 is a rugged, large and articulate sounding, meticulously handcrafted heirloom quality guitar capable of many musical styles.

  • Neck Carve: There are five neck carve options listed below. The measurements listed are thickness specs from the top of the fretboard to the backside of the neck at both the first fret and the 12th fret. These necks, like most all guitar necks, gradually taper to a thicker profile as you approach the 12th fret. All of these necks are traditional C profiles. Ask about any other shape such as a D, V, etc or any custom measurements and it shouldn't be a problem to carve for you!

    • Fattest Vintage No Taper C Profile: 1.00" thick
    • Extra Fat Vintage C Profile: .920" at the 1st fret to 1.00" at the 12th
    • 59' C Profle: .860" at 1st fret tapered to .960" at 12th

  • Bridge: Listed below are many combinations of bridges/tailpieces from Schroeder, ABM Germany, Mastery, Bigsby and TonePros.



  • Nut Width/Material:
    • 1 11/16" bleached white or vintage natural Bone. This is the most popular modern electric guitar nut width. We can also use any other nut width of your choice.


  • Scale Length:
    • 24.75" is my standard and is found widely in the guitar industry. We can of course also do any other scale length such as the popular longer 25.5", etc. I have made many 24.9" scale guitars and it's one of my favorites. We can also do baritone scale lengths or anything custom.


  • Finish: Below are two nitrocellulose lacquer finish options followed by solid and semi-transparent color options.

    • Satin
      Satin nitrocellulose. Very smooth, fast and thin. The guitar top is mirror flat while the back, sides and neck are open grain and have a more natural wood feel. Add $100 for any semi-transparent or solid color of your choice.

    • Gloss Top and Headstock/Satin Back and Sides (Add $150)
      Exactly like the previous finish option except the top+headstock are high gloss instead of satin. The back, sides and neck remain open grain satin. Add $100 for any semi-transparent of solid color of your choice.


    • Color options:

      Dark sunburst optional on any top.

      Solid color options: Olive Green, Black, Blood Red, Copper Metallic, Silver Metallic, Blackened Forest Green, Vintage Cream, Burnt Yellow or Tobacco Sunburst.
