O nyx F orge custom electric guitarsI work with customers to "spec out" their ideal custom guitars, including 6, 7, and 12 string standards, baritones and basses, as well as other stringed instruments such as electric ukuleles and mandolins. Specializing in exotic woods and custom switching for active, passive or piezo pickups, including MIDI interface. World wide shipping.


Notable Onyx Forge owners - all types of music:

  • Tom Phillips - A highly accomplished musician, guitarist and founding member of While Heaven Wept . In late 2006, Tom and I collaborated on his first commissioned custom baritone. In 2007, Tom traded out a number of Fender and Gibson custom shop instruments for a stable of Onyx Forge customs that vary widely in design. This core group was used by both Tom and fellow guitarist Scott Loose on WHW's lastest album Fear of Infinity .

    As with all commissioned Onyx Forge instruments, the spec sheet for each guitar is developed through collaboration between the musician and Onyx Forge. These are custom instruments in the true sense of the word.

    Audio sample - "The Farthest Shore"
    Audio sample - "To Wander The Void"
