Mermet Guitars – Custom Esquire

The Story

Yesterday was a really special day and I did a video to capture it.

I took delivery of a custom made guitar from Mermet Guitars in San Rafael, CA. This is truly my signature edition and it one of the most amazing instruments I have ever touched.  Hugo and I started working on this idea several months ago and it took shape very quickly.  He worked with me every step of the way and as the wood took shape it led us to make some changes from the original carve and colors, but this is exactly how this guitar was intended to be.  My vision was to create a extremely modern version of the Esquire telecaster based on an limited edition Fender I got way back in 2001.  I thats been with me for 15 years and its truly my signature.

Here’s the spec list :

– Hand carved Burl maple top
– Swamp Ash body
– Cocobolo neck
– Asian Ebony fretboard
– 25.5″ scale
– Bare Knuckle Pickups Warpig
– Hipshot Products Inc Bridge & Tuners
– Graph Tech Guitar Labs nut
– Luminlay side dots
– CTS & Switchcraft electronics
– 22 Jescar stainless steel frets
If you are considering a custom build I can wholeheartedly recommend working with Hugo Mermet.  Learn more at :
