Grover Jackson strives to produce instruments that far surpass industry standards by helping passionate innovators and boutique builders manifest their visions. A giant among guitar designers, with over 50 years experience working on R&D teams for some of the most iconic guitars ever made, Jackson has put together a new team of passionate luthiers, innovators and engineers to help support a rebirth of the guitar industry.
From small parts to full projects, our team can help guarantee that the design you are sending to a manufacturing firm, regardless of what country it's located in, will be scientifically and mathematically accurate. The time and money you will save by having your designs polished and up to industry standards will far outweigh any doubt of what the next step should be... because this is the next step. This work is based on an hourly rate because not all jobs or challenges are created equal.
So, you have an original idea drawn on a napkin... now what? This is where we come in. We will help you translate your drawing into a presentable design. You'll be able to take your design to any meeting, shop or manufacturer feeling confident. This is the first step towards manifesting your vision.
During the consultation we will help you troubleshoot and develop your ideas. You want to pick our brain about business? You need to know what the steps are to creating your dream guitar? Are you wanting to build a small line of guitars? Do you have ideas but you have no idea what to do with them? We can help get you started on the right path for success.
If you already have a design in mind, and are looking to get a physical prototype made, we've got your back! At the end of a 5-day journey, we'll hand you an industrial design, ready to be uploaded and translated into a tool path, and a raw prototype* capable of playing.
*Note that "raw prototype" means an unfinished, unrefined, instrument created as a physical starting point of line manufacturing. This is not a ready-for market "custom built" guitar.
Our team has a vast amount of knowledge and skill that can provide support to your team in the comfort of your own shop. Our off-site visits give your team a chance to become more efficient and learn on the tools they use every day. This is also a great way to bridge a gap between designers, when you don't want to slow down production.
*Travel costs may vary depending on location.
From full line designs to small run manufacturing we can help you take your brand to the next level.
