Hockin Custom Guitars

A New American Tradition With Vintage Appeal

Well hello there folks. 
Just wanting to get you up to speed about what's been going on at Hockin Custom Guitars. The fine folks at Gibson guitars have had a few words to say to me about my product. Even though the headstock is different, the body dimensions are different (thickness & length), and the overall length is different, they say that I'm "infringing" on their copywrite. So out of the laundry list of things that you cannot do because you'll be copying their design, the... only this they could come up with is, "You can no longer use the letters LP in any description of your product, and going forward the lower horn on the body must be different to avoid any confusion." Oh, did I mention they wanted $10,000 to make this go away? So after several emails & phone calls, all is well at Hockin Custom Guitars. Could it be that my products are just, I don't know, GOOD? Could it be that I can offer a VERY FINE guitar at a MUCH BETTER price than them? Is that WHY they went after "the little guy"?
So get ready folks, the NEW and IMPROVED line from Hockin Custom Guitars is underway as we speak. The SC Series (Single Cut) will be on the market this year. The proto-type is being made right now, and should be in my hands within the next 4-5 weeks. Sleeker lines, faster necks, brilliant colors, and will pack one hell of a punch. Pro players, I'll be getting guitars for you to demo & take on the road. Regular Joe's (and Janes), I'll be making products that will definitely appeal to you wallet, your eyes, and your ears. So get ready folks, I'll be getting MUCH MORE AGGRESSIVE with sales and making EVERYONE take notice. I'll do my best to "Make Guitars Great Again!"


And Remember:

If It Ain't A Hockin' You're Not Rockin'

Building quality affordable guitars with the working musician in mind.

Let's face it, a good quality guitar can be down right expensive. They average in price from $1,500-$3,500 to start, and just go up from there. Hockin Custom Guitars knows this, and has the answer to your dilemma. A high quality guitar, with fantastic pickups, top notch hardware, in a huge assortment of colors. Oh, and hears the best part, they start at $799. No, that's not a typo....Starting at $799.

I'm not out to make millions of dollars, just make you an affordable, quality instrument that you'll be playing for years to come. Let me show you what all the buzz is about, and why customer after customer keeps saying, If It Ain't A Hockin, You're Not Rockin'

If It ain't a Hockin, you're not rocking'

I team up with a few different companies that provides the wood that will make the body & neck of the guitar. Then it is cut to my personal specifications.


Once I have the "bones" of the instrument, I take care of the rest. Natural finishes, brilliant colored stains, top of the line hardware, and all the accessories you'll need for a one of a kind instrument built exclusively for you.
