< Handmade Quality >
Most guitar factories mass-produce instruments using CNC machinery. At Ayers we insist on retaining the high standards of traditional luthiery. This means that every Ayers guitar is completely handmade. This allows us to respond to the individual instruments character as it is being made. This takes a lot more time and effort – but we at Ayers are dedicated to an uncompromisingly high standard, for the benefit of our customers.
<Responsible Tone Wood>
Ayers choose the best quality tone woods from suppliers that are certified by TFT (The Forest Trust). We believe that this makes a difference to the world.
Ayers always choose the best timbers and parts to build a guitar. We use the Gotoh machine heads, real bone nuts and saddles and the best one piece mahogany neck on all our premium guitars.
< Polyurethane Finish >
The finish on all Ayers guitars is somewhat softer and thinner than on many other brand name guitars. It takes a lot longer to do the finish this way, but results in a guitar that maximizes the tonal characteristics of the quality timbers and other materials used, and ensures that the instrument will sound even better as it ages.
We provide a satin finish on the neck, which allows for the best possible playability, and provides a clean neck-to-body join. Again, it takes more time, but the best things in life usually do.
From the beginning stage to now (Ever since the beginning), Ayers has been doing the satin neck finish and body finish separately. This is our secret of amazing playability while, at the same time, being able to present a perfectly clean neck joint. This is a time-consuming procedure, but it simply worths.
< Dovetail Neck-Body Join >
A dovetailed neck is the traditional method of joining the neck to the body. A proper tight dovetail helps to maximize the tonal characteristics of the instrument. However, many guitar makers now utilize quicker bolt-on neck designs. It’s faster and cheaper, but at what cost? At Ayers we want the best for anyone who buys one of our guitars, and that’s why we continue to provide the best possible standards of manufacture for musical instruments – and this includes a dovetail neck-to-body join.
< Custom Shop >
Ayers provide a custom shop service. If you would like to take one of our stunning instruments and customize it to suit yourself and your personality and style, we can accommodate you at very affordable rates. You may be surprised at how easily you can make your Ayers guitar a one-of-a-kind for only a little extra outlay.
