What makes Booches Custom Guitars so special?
These guitars are not mass-produced. They are designed and personally built in the USA by two passionate builders that see them as works of art. We want to make sure each guitar that leaves our shop is paired with a happy client which is why we make it a habit of speaking to or meeting each client that we either build a guitar for, or sell a guitar to.
