Design Services

Alloy Guitars can produce your dream instrument! We can take your drawings in almost any form, convert them to CAD models, and produce guitars for you. We have extensive experience doing this sort of design and manufacturing for a variety of builders. We can produce almost anything you want. Please contact us to discuss your project.

OEM Manufacturing

Our engineering and production facility is located just outside of Portland, Oregon, USA. We have the equipment, tooling and materials to build instruments for you economically and efficiently. We help many smaller builders to reduce their costs, improve quality and reliability, minimize inventory and staffing requirements, and take their sales and profits to the next level.

We can also source parts and configure everything for you to do the final finishing and build out work for your customers. We can source a huge variety of parts and electronics, allowing you to configure your guitars exactly how you need them. This lets you spend your time and effort in the place where it matters most to your business and your brand – distinguishing your offerings based on your customers needs.

We are happy to work with you on small batches or large – and we are very responsive to your timelines!

Design and Manufacturing Flexibility

Many of our customers have base models with a variety of slight variations. For example, the pickup or bridge routing might vary from one model to the next. The same fundamental neck design might support a locking nut as well as non-locking nuts (or zero frets).

This sort of variability is not a problem at all. You won’t pay extra to mix-and-match bodies with differing details such as pickup routes.

We can produce your designs economically and in quantity based on your needs. Modifications to the design require little effort (e.g., changing pickup routing).

General Design Process

Our work to produce parts based on your design ideas looks like this:

  • You provide us with your drawings (in whatever for you have them).
  • We import your file or scan your drawing into our CAD systems.
  • We clean up the drawings to ready them for production. As part of this work, we use standard components such as pickup and neck routes to minimize your costs and make your design compatible with more parts.
  • We provide you with a “proof” of the design in the form of a digital image or images for you to for review.
  • We do the engineering work to produce the CNC/CAM programing for cutting your instrument.
  • A prototype is produced and shipped to you for verification.
  • Once validated, we schedule your production run!

Custom and OEM Costs

If you contact us with your thoughts, we can give you an estimate of the costs in doing your custom designs, as well as production costs based on the quantities you plan to purchase.
