Sexauer Guitars

Prices and business methods as of
October 25, 2021
and until further noice

My Work, and Your Obligation!
(when you're ready!)

Price structure at the time of retainer is locked in unless you balk when your time comes.

I make unique guitars. There is no actual "standard" guitar, and these models listed here are where we start our conversation. Even if you order a standard model, it won't be built exactly like the one your buddy ordered. This is because I am going to do my best to make it to suit you. I am paying close attention (and taking notes. . . after I receive your deposit).                                        Bruce Sexauer

My Business Methods!

Typical guitar features include:

H. Mahogany/Indian Rosewood/Jatoba back and sides Wood bindings w/mitered purflings
EuroSpruce or Adirondack Spruce soundboard Back center strip matching bindings (quite a few choices)
Honduras Mahogany Neck MOP or Abalone logo/side dots/fingerboard inlays
Ebony fingerboard w/Ebony or body matched binding Choice of Waverly or Schertler or Schaller tuners.
Ebony bridge w/inlayed ebony (or other!) pins Oil varnish finish (applied by myself)
Hide glue construction where possible Visesnut Case is included. Any other case I can get @ cost + 10%
I do make simpler guitars (WRX) than the above described, and they can be significantly less expensive.
. . .   . . . 
I have 3 size categories:
Companion      $18,000.us
Regulation      $25,000.us
Grand      $28,000.us
Parlor, FT-13, FT-0, 13 1/2" wide or less

FT-14, FT-00, FT-15, FT-000, Concert size

FT-16, Dreadnaught, Jumbo

  . . .   . . . 

A great variation of design is available within the size parameters. 
"Regulation" for instance, can be a 14 fret or a 12 fret, 14" or 15" width, Martinesque, Jumbo-ish, or Classical!
Not to mention symmetrial or asymmetrical.
Because I work w/o molds and most conventional fixtures, I can offer a much broader design spectrum
than you may be used to!

While my typical guitar will meet most people's notion of a handmade guitar,
the next few lines will give you an idea of the possibilities.

A few of the many possible Options:

In the interest of simplification, many of the items I previously viewed as upcharges will now be merely options. With the exception of my best Brazilian Rosewood and/or Pernambuco, and "the Tree", any of my many tonewoods are now available at base price.
Here are a few things that may still involve an upcharge:
Full asymmetry inluding MultiScale and cutaway
Ornate decorative Pearl Work
Martin style Pyramid Bridge
This list is a work in progress. Please contact me for further information.

Prices are US dollars FOB Petaluma, CA. Sales Tax will be added in California.
I have been relying upon personal contact, telephone conversation, and email, both to establish the details and price of your instrument, and to clarify any issues around my concept and competence as a Luthier. Please don't hesitate to call text me, Bruce Sexauer, at:
