We truly are a Custom Guitar Shop

We will hand build anything you want.
Our commitment to excellence shows through our valued customers one guitar at a time. Loyal customers choose Jagneaux for Affordability, Craftsmanship and Experience.


You’d be surprised at how affordable a Jagneaux custom guitar can be. Most orders save customers up to 50% or more! How does a master luthier make works of art so affordable? It's simple - he loves it. With little overhead, no debt and a gigging musician, John Jagneaux can easily keep costs down and still enjoy the mastery of his craft while staying in touch with what musicians really need. So why go retail or any other custom shop when you can have your cake and eat it, too – for less!


All guitars are meticulously hand-crafted from scratch. We DO NOT buy prefabricated or already-cut wood parts. All paint jobs are custom and all necks and bodies are hand-made starting from square pieces of wood. Bolt-on, glue-on, neck through, carved top, quilt top, flame top, zebrawood, Birdseye maple, purple heart, Brazilian rosewood, custom inlay, exotic shapes, exotic woods, any hardware, custom paint, graphics - the list is endless. We can even copy a guitar from a picture! (See below)


All wood materials are quality cuts that are inspected to ensure not only their durability but also that their tonal and aesthetic characteristics are intact. Hardware is just as important, so we would make appropriate recommendations wherever needed.


Playability is always second to none. Jagneaux guitars are built for musicians by musicians. We wouldn’t build something that we wouldn’t play ourselves. Therefore, playability, feel and sound are integral to the build process.


We have the skill and experience to know what you want. Call with any questions about sound, wood, paint, hardware, frets, nut material, action, etc. We are a wealth of knowledge with over 30 years experience.

JoJo Garza from Los Lonely Boys playing a custom bass built by John Jagneaux. JoJo was a special guest in south east Texas for New Year's Eve 2007-2008. He guest starred on stage at Whiskey River alongside the Jamie Talbert Band, playing this 5 string bass. JoJo is an avid supporter and player of Hohner basses (not to mention he's endorsed through them), but he offered comment on the Jagneaux custom: "It's a very nice bass. It's comfortable and easy to play. Compliments to the builder!"
