General NewsDownload NCBA Specialty License Plate Application here (PDF) Actual plate may be slightly different. We will try to replace the First In Flight with Bluegrass Roots. But it will be close to this design, until we reach 500 then will go for a much more colorful plate.

Apex Custom Guitars

I strive to build instruments that rival and surpass the finest made. The vast majority of my guitars are built to order and I work closely with my clients to create their ultimate guitar. We’ll sit down one-on-one to discuss how you play and to learn what your guitar preferences are - like sound, finish and other appointments you might have in mind. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want we’ll figure it out together. We’ll come up with all the details and specs: wood type, neck size and shape, hardware and electronics, body style, everything! This is an exciting time; I mean what player doesn't love to talk about their dream guitar?

We still carry all major brands of Acoustic String Instrument products including D'Addario, Martin, GHS, John Pearse and more.. Our pick selection is also extensive.
