You have a choice of pickups from active to passive, EMG, Alembic or vintage-style. I can even make it with a thinline type of body.

Our Custom traditional single-cutaway

I've always liked these humbuckers under the long Fender® scale length. We'd been making these Custom Creations for a number of years when we obtained a huge pile of these Fender® humbuckers. The solid wood bodies are available in blonde, black, ivory, blueburst and rubyburst. Lots of choices of necks: from maple, rosewood and permutations from the Warmoth or Moses portfolios. Can come with Bigsby-style tailpiece for you wankers.... The model shown here is happily rocking in Puerto Rico. Here it is leaning against FatDog's 1936 Dodge pickup that he used to drive to Subway in the 1960s. Starts at $450

The E-caster

Rock star stuff. Pelvis-gyrating machine. Gold-sparkle glitter finish and mother-of-toiletseat pickguard. Has a contour on back fit for a king's chubby paunch. I should probably give some of the profits from these to Arthur "Big Boy" Cruddup, since he got nothin' out of it -- and it really was his thang.

Traditional-style electric guitar -- double cutaway.

Every body wants a *Strat! I've chosen this instrument for its excellent features and budget price. The body is solid wood and is equipped with a high-quality tremelo bridge that raises -- and lowers -- the pitch. This is usually accomplished by a high-tech system that is more trouble than its worth, but the bridge on this is in the traditional style and does a very good job. The electronics system comes with a humbucking lead pickup at the bridge and two traditional single coils in the neck and middle position. The neck is excellent quality with a good trussrod system; it has high quality enclosed tuning gears. Colors: ivory, black, metallic, blue, red, sunburst. Similar instruments list for at least $400. Our price: $175

Tele* Deluxe

A great version of a Telecaster®. (Even stoned-out jerks have rocked with this model.) For years we installed humbuckers in the neck position of *teles (I can see all the vintage dorks cringing about now). Humbuckers rule under a 25-1/2 inch scale length. Fender® even got down with it in the 70s. Choice of colors and bursts, with our assortment of necks from vintage to contemporary. Also Warmoth and Moses graphite permutations. Tele* deluxe starts at $425

Ordering Merchandise

I understand your concerns about buying a guitar over the Internet. You can't put your hands on it. You don't know what it'll look like, what it'll sound like, how it will feel. Then there are the issues surrounding shipping anxiety: "Will it arrive undamaged?" "When will it arrive?" "WILL it arrive?" The concerns go on and on: "What's the tracking number?" "Will you ship it today?" "When will you ship it?" "Can I get it tomorrow?"

Here are five key points to put your mind at ease:


"Experience Ecstacy" for a week with your new guitar. If the instrument is not what you expected, then expect a full refund on merchandise returned in the condition of purchase. Fatdog considers this the backbone of good biz (and happy customers).

NOTE: There is no refund for shipping.

Trade-ins are seriously considered at a high value.
