Sexauer Guitars

Prices and business methods as of
February 20, 2023
and until further noice


Retirement turns out to be a skill I am not ready to work on. I spent a year trying it out, and let us speak of it no more, at least for the time being.

I am, however, interested in streamlining  my ordering process. For many years I have offered three guitar sizes at different prices, all with a common trim package, plus a price structure for just about any option one could think of. There was also a vague down-scale model called WRX, pronounced "Works", and intended for the musician who wanted the goods w/o the bling. 

As of now I will have one price for any "Standard" guitar and that can include a cutaway, sound port, body wedge, or MultiScale, at the customer's option. Some of my more rare and exotic woods will increase the price, and the case will be at my cost +10%, as is shipping.

WRX  also can also be any size, but will not have any options at all beyond wood choices, tonal target, and size. The WRX trim package is simpler, but the construction is identical to my mainstream work. Nothing is missing that I believe is essential to a first quality guitar.

While I reserve the right to change the details of my business methods at any time, I plan to keep this structure for at least a year from today, which is Feb. 20, 2023.

My typical guitar will exceed most people's expectations of a handmade guitar.

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.
