We are your guitar finisher

We offer guitar finishing services for bodies, necks and set-neck acoustics and electrics. We accept both unfinished and finished instruments. We specialize in matching products to our customers’ needs.  Whether it’s a modern poly, vintage nitro or a custom coating system, when you work with Southbound Custom, you’ll get a finish that performs to your specifications and exceeds your expectations.

We also welcome large-quantity accounts from builders.  We offer industry leading quality, turn-around and customer service to help you meet the demands of today’s market.  Let us help you increase production, offer new finishes or just take the headache of finishing out of your business model.

Your creativity is the only limit on color for guitar finishing.  Because every player is different, many colors we spray are custom mixes.  We work from photos, samples and customer input to dial in every color from an aged Sonic Blue to a wild mix of pearls and metal flakes.  We, of course,  offer a vast array of classic colors.
