A friend's wife plays guitar and he would like to have a guitar custom made for her as a surprise. He knows nothing about guitars and asked me if I knew anyone who might be interested in making her a guitar. I make fiddles and wouldn't want to try a guitar. Anyone interested?

I live in Michigan. Pal lives in northern Ohio. So I posted it in two locations on the forum. I am getting all of the respondent's info to pass along to him.

Something to tell your friend. Expect most experienced builders to have some sort of back log. Plus the normal build time. Expect 3-5 months for a short turn around on a custom build and a year or more is not unusual. That is why the first time I replied to the other post I said time till birth day can be critical. Now if buying from out of a builder’s standard product line, you may fine a suitable instrument already built.
