Custom Series is a testament to our commitment in making finely handcrafted instruments accessible to everyone; luthier-grade instruments that are available off-the-rack. Available in specific wood & shape combinations, each Custom Series guitar is carefully voiced by Hozen and is furnished with our signature CSB options – Soundport, Florentine Cutaway, and Beveled Armrest – features that you will not see from mass-produced & factory-built instruments.
Though bracing patterns affect the tonal characteristics of an acoustic guitar, there is no formulaic way of guaranteeing the best tone. Every piece of wood is different that is why we take time to individually voice every Custom Series guitar to deliver an instrument that has a very delicate response, rich in projection, and full of character.
Considered as the guitar that paved the way to the other series, Custom Series guitars are specially voiced to to be as responsive as they can be while have rich and distinct tonal characteristics, a guitar that is always inspiring to play any given day.
We source for the best wood all over the world and naturally season them for years to ensure that they are responsive and have the ideal moisture content. The wood that we use for the Custom Series are handselected based on how fast the sound travels across the board, richness of tap tones, deflection, and wood grain.
Available with our signature CSB options – Florentine Cutaway, Soundport & Beveled Armrest – these guitars standout as they offer something that you rarely see off-the-rack. Aside from the playing comfort that the Beveled Armrest offers, the Soundport brings you to another level of expression and inspiration as it allows you to hear in detail every nuance of your playing.
