Sims Custom Shop Guitars

Hi there,

I am thinking of buying a guitar from Sims... Was just wondering if anybody has already and what their thoughts were about their work, price, profesionality, etc.

THANKS!

I would do a search on here if I were you, many threads on this very topic, recent ones haven't been too nice towards SCS, especially re: professionalism and customer service.

Re: Sims Custom Shop Guitars

I know the word overpriced is something which is said to often these days, but they are in the same price league as Gibson, PRS, Suhr or the likes. I don't know what warrants that. An if you ever want to sell it you will get hammered and not get what you will for one of the above. There was a white one here a while ago for sale or even trade it and it didn't work. Look at the Classified he probably still has it. Rest see thread above.

Re: Sims Custom Shop Guitars

As far as I have been able to discuss with Patrick, pricing is nowhere near the price of a Suhr, not with the options I am looking for anyways. Sims price is much lower (understandable in my opinion, as they have a lot to prove to customers, while Suhr is a recognised brand for its excellence...)

However, I am basically requesting building a custom guitar, an Ibanez copy, to which he was basically agreeing, but I have read comments over here from him saying heīs no luthier and canīt make necks or bodies... Does anyone know how he builds his guitars then? Are they bought to a different manufacturer?

I am not sure but i would contact Ranz . The ibby copies may be built by Chris woods and assembled and painted by Sims. It seems the better bet nowadays as strange as it sounds in regards to quality and speed seems to contact thelegacy.
