A great number of styles, woods, fittings and options are available. I have taken the time to outline the most favoured possibilities, with prices,  on the Instruments page. Other options may be available should you have something very specific in mind.

Before Construction Begins

To initiate the crafting of an instrument, a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 (CDN) is required to secure a place in my building schedule. This will also lock in the price of your instrument. I will forward a letter or email acknowledging receipt of your deposit and confirming the agreed specifications and price.

During Construction

Under certain circumstances an interim payment may be required to cover the cost of special materials or fittings not within my existing inventory. Such payments will be agreed upon in advance.

Upon Completion

The balance is due upon completion together with any shipping charges. Please ask for a quote on shipping at that time.

I provide a 48-hour period within which to approve your instrument. Should you decide not to keep it within that period, you must contact me by telephone at 905-683-1721 to arrange for return and refund. Provided the instrument is returned in original condition, a refund, minus the initial non-refundable deposit of $500.00 (CDN) will be issued. Instruments with special materials, features or custom design options will be refunded upon resale only.

The customer must fully insure all returns. Any damage resulting from the return shipment is the responsibility of the customer. I cannot provide a refund for a guitar that’s been damaged in return shipment. This is an issue the customer will need to address with their carrier.


All LFdM Guitars are warranted against defects in materials and workmanship to the original owner. I will repair defects in materials or workmanship as long as I am actively in business.

This warranty does not cover typical wear and tear or damage due to extremes in humidity or temperature, misuse, abuse, accidents or alterations made by anyone other than me. Taking proper care of an instrument is the responsibility of its owner (Please see Guitar Care section). This warranty also does not cover damage incurred during shipping of instruments.


Upon receipt and clearance of your final payment, your guitar will be shipped “next day”. Prices do not include shipping, insurance, taxes or handling charges. Payment can be made by cash, check or money order.
