I make custom guitars and basses, locally, ethically and sustainably from reclaimed, upcycled and naturally-felled materials. I won't copy the "other guys" designs, but I have a few of my own and have made several custom instruments inspired by the classics, but with a unique spin. Oh, and the weirder, the better :)
And I can usually compete with quality, factory-made guitar prices, too.
Attached is just a small sample of some instruments I have made. CPntact me to discuss your dream build and feel free to visit for more information

This was my first experience with Custom Made, and it rocked! Tim did such an awesome job on the bass. He finished way ahead of his projection and kept it at a very reasonable price. The bass itself is beautiful; it plays so well. I’ve owned many basses in my day, but this is by far the most unique. I cannot recommend Tim Sway Perspectives enough.
His communication throughout the project was fantastic; I received updates regularly. He was very open to my input, which was great. Tim definitely wants the customer to be satisfied.
If you want a really cool bass [or guitar], look no further. Do yourself a favor and let Tim Sway make it for you.
