Welcome to C-Rocker Custom Guitars and repairs. My Shop is located in Aptos, CA, in Santa Cruz County on the central coast.

 

If you want a one of a kind USA handmade custom guitar or just need a set of strings installed, you've come to the right place.

I also restore and refinish vintage guitars, specializing in Gibson, Gretch, Guild and Fender.   


One of my specialties is producing custom and vintage pickguards.  I now produce over 200 different Gibson, Epiphone, Fender  and other vintage Pickguards.  One of my specialties is the Gibson ES-295 floral pickguard.
