Kavanagh Custom Guitars

High-quality, hand-made custom guitars from the UK

KavanaghCustoms is a small UK-based guitar luthier and repair/upgrade workshop focusing primarily on vintage Fender and Gibson electric guitars, and producing quality replacement and aftermarket parts.

Based to the North of Greater Manchester, we have been going strong for several years and between the members of our team, we have well over a hundred years of guitar playing, repairing and restoring experience.

Well-known, well-reviewed and with an exciting list of clients that include many well-known guitar greats, we have only settled ourselves online properly since mid-2006 and now offer a selection of our guitars, and our renowned quality placement bodies and necks for sale right here on this website through our online store. We also run occasional eBay auctions and maintain a small eBay store, although for the most comprehensive list of currently available parts, our webstore is the best place to look first.

We build some of the highest-quality handmade bodies and necks available in the UK today and are proud to be the only regular supplier of real nitrocellulose finishes, as well as specialising in original DuPont and Fender Custom Shop colours. Stock changes frequently so if you don't see exactly what you're after, bookmark us and come back later, or drop us an email and we will be more than happy to offer no-obligation advice and can build virtually any stringed instrument you can dream of.

Alnico and ferrite Magnets for Making Guitar Pickups

Dear Sirs,

I learned from internet that your company manufactures & supplies guitar pickups. You may need Alnico and ferrite magnets. Now I'm contacting you for the magnet business.

Our company is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of permanent magnets in China. We have supplied AlNiCo, NdFeB, SmCo and FeCrCo magnets to many of our customers in North America and Europe. Our company is certified according to ISO9001 and TS16949.

We can supply the following magnetic products:
1. AlNiCo magnets;
2. Ceramic magnets (Ferrite magnets).

Should you need any above magnets to make your guitar pickups, please don't hesitate to send your inquiry to us. We hope to become one of your reliable magnet suppliers.

Kindest regards,

Fay Duan / Sales Dept.

what happened to Kavanagh Custom Guitars

I have heard (saw) this question before. I recently received a custom built Gem Solid Body from them that was started a year or so prior. It is dynamite and anyone is lucky to obtain one of these. I think he is still making them, just hard to contact. My understanding was that he (John) was to build 100 of these units.
