Product FAQ's

What materials are available for custom guitars?

Material availability ranges based on the specific guitar model you are looking at purchasing. You can view all available options on the product page in the customizer or in the product specifications table.

Where are the guitars made?

All Johnny Foreigner Guitars are manufactured and assembled in Los Angeles, California. We do not manufacture overseas and pride ourselves on being made in the United States.

The only part of a Johnny Foreigner Guitar which is sourced from overseas are the pickups which were designed by world renowned guitar maker Matt Gleeson of Monty's Guitars in London, England.

How long does it take for a custom guitar to be built?

Current production times for a made-to-order custom guitar is 8 weeks.

We are working to increase the speed of this process as we grow as a company, but the biggest factor in the 8 week turn around time is the multiple paint coats and time for curing we dedicate to each Guitar. We want a guitars finish to last a lifetime and not fade away after a few years of normal use.

What types of pickups are available?

Johnny Foreigner Guitars have the option to come with Humbuckers, P90's, or Single Coil pickups.

What strings do Johnny Foreigner Guitars use?

We use String Joy strings for all of our guitars. When customizing your guitar you'll have the option to select a string type from the model of strings we offer.
