Prototype Guitar - Available to Order and built to your preferences. Please Contact

Soon to be available with custom tremolo

Owen Peter Thomas aka OPT, is an independent guitar maker who has been fixing, tweaking, and customising instruments for almost two decades. OPT offers a series of guitars that prioritise the instrument's details, setup and feel.

Introducing the all-new ‘Stori 1’. The initial model focuses on a classic design with a creative twist. Each guitar is hand-refined with a uniquely designed carved headstock and pickguard. The body was built to custom specs. Every design feature was considered to the very smallest of details. I use quality CNC necks which are levelled and crowned to ensure perfect playability.

Carefully selected components have been meticulously fitted together to ensure that the guitar is ready to play straight out of the box and will be a reliable and stable instrument for years to come! The overall feel and aesthetic of the guitar have been made as natural as possible, with the all-around subtle wear giving it a broken-in quality.

This 'Stori 1' features an Alder body, Maple neck and Rosewood fretboard, providing a clear and full-bodied sound. The handmade UK-made 'Lukerwind' Renegade Pickups sound sublime; accessible through the 3-way pickup selector and volume & tone control offering a variety of sounds on tap.

The first released Stori 1 / Serial number 006, is now available for sale and comes with a hardcase and accessory tin.

Offers are also available on this instrument.

The guitar will be shipped using Parcelforce 48 within the UK, and delivery should take around 2-3 working days once the order has been placed, or collection is possible. If you're interested in an on-site demonstration in London, please get in contact.

A variety of colour options for the body and pickguard can be ordered, and custom-built to your spec/preferences. Estimated Completion time: 2 months.

I offer a no-quibbles return policy so if you bought this and within 14 days felt it wasn't for you I would issue a full refund based on a safe return, at your expense.
