Summertime and the livin' is covered in sawdust....

Hey kids, how about an update?

Custom orders are closed

As mentioned a few weeks ago, the custom order books are now closed. We’re hoping to open up a few spots in the fall, but we may need to close them through the end of the year. During this time, we’ll be focusing on the following:

Current custom backlog: There are a lot of guitars in the build process, and I need to get them moved along.

Conspiracy Series: Run 2 of the Conspiracy Series arrived at Sully HQ, and I need to get them processed and shipped. Spares will be made available shortly thereafter, so if you missed out, all may not be lost (as long as you wanted something that was popular in the pre-orders). They’ll be posted on our Reverb store.

Run 3 Conspiracy Series pre-orders will remain open for a little while longer, so for those who wanted flame tops and trans finishes, your wish has been granted.

Ormsby Guitars/Sully Guitars mashup: It’s something we’ve been discussing for a while, and we’re getting close to making it available for pre-order. It’ll be gold, Jerry! More on that this summer.

Preparing for the arrival of our CNC: Yes, the robot is coming. I’m excited. You should be, too. CNC technology is something we’ve been using to various degrees for years, and I look forward to full implementation and assimilation. Since I’m still working in the same small space I’ll need to tear some things down, build some new things, and let some tools go (I’m looking at you, pin router).

Standard Series: With the arrival of our robot overlord, we should be able to roll out the Standard Series, which is something I’ve wanted to offer for a few years. We have the Conspiracy Series, which brings a lot of Sully goodness to you at less than 1/2 the price of a custom, but I’ve also wanted to offer a product line that’s between the Conspiracy Series and our Custom Series. I’m not 100% sure what it will look like just yet, but I’ve been working toward it for a while now, and I think I have a pretty good idea.

Oh yeah, and my favorite 800lb gorilla, NAMM. If things continue as they should, you just might see a new model. Or more.
