Skervesen Guitars are a Polish guitar company who are known for their modern and gorgeous custom guitars. They’ve gained a substantial following in recent years due to their instruments being played by metal bands like Modern Day Babylon, and now they’ve reached out to me and offered to build me a custom guitar! Am I dreaming?

Because this is such an exciting process, I’m going to document each and every step along the way — from picking out which guitar I want to direct communication with the company and work-in-progress pictures. It’s a unique process from start to finish that probably has more layers to it than you’d think, so let’s dive right in!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
