Welcome to Worland Custom Guitars. If you are looking for your personal luthier made guitar, you have come to the right place! I hand build acoustic guitars to custom specifications for professional musicians and living-room players who are looking for a unique instrument at a reasonable price.
I have several different models from which to choose, each of which can be built from the woods of your choice and personalized with a variety of options. Whether you desire a particular sound, custom inlays, or a completely unique instrument, I encourage you to specify exactly the guitar you want or let me guide you to it.
Since this is your guitar, I want you to be involved in the process, from design to completion. I will keep you posted with photos and updates as the guitar progresses. Working with a customer in designing and building the guitar is what I enjoy most.
Please read my customer comments and on-line reviews and check out the article in Acoustic Guitar magazine. With my reputation for world class quality, my mission and my passion is to present your heirloom quality guitar that you will cherish for a lifetime.
You can obtain more information on my ordering page and on my price list page or check my FAQ page. I love talking guitars and look forward to hearing from you...and building the guitar of your dreams soon.

"Dear Jim,Wow! is all I can say. I have owned some very nice guitars in the past: Martins, Breedloves, etc and this OM is heads and tails above any of those. The guitar is beautifully made, has great playabilty and the neck is buttery smooth. You have truly perfected your art. Thanks again for all your patience and what a wonderful guitar to spend the rest of my life with. Best wishes for you in the future " -Zack
