Congratulations to Zaman Khan, who just became the proud owner of D&S Avatar Deluxe DS 0004. I was sad to see this guitar go but I'm happy that another one of my instruments is now in the care of someone who will love and cherish it. Thanks Zaman!

Available for sale is this Drew & Sebastian Avatar Deluxe, which I built in 2010. I designed this guitar to play and feel like a good Stratocaster guitar but not look or sound like one. Its body is made from a single piece of solid mahogany and is very resonant, even when played acoustically. Other features include a Callaham Vintage 'S' tremolo bridge, two genuine Gretsch FilterTron pickups, one-piece maple neck, Kluson vintage-style tuners and premium hardware and electronics. This is an exceptional hand-built guitar of the very highest quality. When this guitar was displayed in my booth at the Southeastern Guitar and Amp Show in 2011 it was priced at $1,800 (a very reasonable price for a premium handmade instrument) but I am only looking for offers around half that amount (actually far less than I have invested in it). The guitar will be set up to perfection for its new owner, and includes a hardshell case and a D&S logo guitar strap. I'd love to keep this guitar but I don't play it and would like to see it go to a good home where it will be played and enjoyed. If interested, please PM me.

One of the coolest guitars I built during my time as a guitarmaker is this Drew & Sebastian Firenza electric guitar. This was the tenth instrument I made and it was my attempt to blend elements of all my favourite Fender guitars. The neck and headstock are inspired by the 1970's Stratocaster and Mustang designs, the body draws inspiration from the Telecaster, Mustang and Jaguar guitars and the tremolo system is a Callaham Vintage 'S' Strat-style unit. There's even a few nods to the Gibson SG with the mahogany body, cherry red finish and twin humbuckers, which are Seymour Duncan Jazz (neck) and JB (bridge) units. This was the only one of these that I built and as such is the only one in existence.

I have decided to make this one available for sale, so if you are looking for a truly unique, one of a kind, high-end hand built guitar, this is it. Build quality, sound and playability are outstanding and all of the woods, electronic components and hardware used in the guitar are top notch. If you would like to own this guitar please PM me with your offer. A unique handmade guitar like this commissioned from a luthier would cost you in the neighbourhood of $3-4k nowadays, and even my price at the time would have been around $2,000+. The guitar will include a hardshell case and an original D&S strap, and I will ship it free anywhere in the continental US. #drewandsebastian #seymourduncan #callahamguitars #custom #luthier

I have made the decision to sell a few of the D&S guitars that remain in my personal collection. The first one is the Avenger guitar shown here, which as some of you may recall was given a glowing review in Vintage Guitar magazine and also featured in an article in Premier Guitar. This was the only one of these that I built and it has the distinction of featuring a set of Velvet Alnico II pickups made by the now-defunct Wizard Pickups. As with all the instruments I built all of the woods, hardware and electronics are top notch, which all make for a beautiful playing and sounding guitar. The Avenger will include its own tweed hardshell case, a D&S strap and a copy of each publication it was featured in. Serious inquiries only please.

D&S Avenger No. DS 0009.

We're very happy to announce that we have found permanent homes for two of our remaining guitars, the Dakota Red Avatar (DS 0019) which has found a home with Adrian in New York, and the gorgeous padauk-topped Europa (DS 0027) which will shortly be on its way to Martyn in the United Kingdom.

It's been a while since I stopped building and repairing guitars, but I still have a couple of Drew & Sebastian instruments which I am making available for sale below my original cost. One is this D&S Avatar, which I built to be as close to a 1954 Fender Stratocaster as possible. It has a one-piece alder body finished in Dakota Red, a classic Fender colour. The body and neck contours are true '54, the tremolo is a Callaham Vintage 'S' and the pickups are Lindy Fralin/Callaham cryogenically treated 50's classics. A vintage style 1-ply 8-hole pickguard and top notch components and hardware round out this beautiful hand-built guitar. If you had the Fender Custom Shop make you a guitar like this you'd be looking at somewhere around $4-5k. If you are interested in this guitar please PM me for pricing. It comes with a case and I will ship it anywhere in the continental US for free. Thanks!

Drew & Sebastian Guitars is now permanently closed. Our website is gone and this page will also be taken down soon. Huge thanks to everyone who has supported us over the last few years including Denny Begle, Mark Davies, Zach Cutler, Tony Anzelone, Donny Holcombe, Dave Tomasso, Greg Clare and Tom Johnson for allowing us to build them their dream guitars and basses.

08/26/2014

Drew & Sebastian Guitars will be shutting down for good at the end of this week. Our website will no longer be active after this Friday, the 30th so if you want to snag one of our last few guitars, please contact us before Friday.

07/26/2014

As of this date we have regrettably reached the difficult decision to close down the D&S brand. The lack of new business and interest in the brand means that it is no longer economically viable to continue. The D&S page and site will continue briefly during the final closure period and will then be taken down. Remaining in-stock instruments will be liquidated below cost (email us with offers), and those that do not sell will have to be stripped down and parted out. This has been a very tough choice for us, but sadly it is unavoidable. We would like to thank everyone who has bought or commissioned an instrument from us over the last few years, it was fun!

Received an email from a California-based guitar website saying they want to act as a dealer for Drew & Sebastian Guitars and add us to their roster of boutique guitar builders. They are also dealers for Nash Guitars and Mayones Guitars & Basses, so this is quite exciting!
