About This Listing

BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL - $150 off custom build!

Schmidt Guitar Company presents the Gentoo, an affordable custom guitar of superb quality. The ordering process is simple. Please message our shop with the specs you would like (options listed below) and expect a 3-4 month build time. After discussing your specs and deciding the best options for you and your playing, you may submit payment. You can find more information and ordering options on our website! Or get ahold of us by sending a message. 

Check out our website for other models and more information:

The Gentoo is our flagship model. This guitar gives you that P90 growl and chimey highs in the middle and neck positions. When it comes to guitars, we believe that simple is better. The Gentoo is equipped with a master volume and master tone using the highest quality components including Emerson Custom pots and a Switchcraft toggle switch. The stock P90 pickups we use will do that job, but we also offer the ability for you to order whichever pickups you desire in your guitar. Each Gentoo has a Bigsby B5 vibrato unit paired with a bridge of your choice for the best tone and playability. Each neck and body are custom finished including our own headstock logo and design.

We require a 50% down payment before building and the remainder and shipping fees the day of shipment. We can be flexible!
