About Ratical Jones Guitars


“You can't fake a passion for luthiery, a love for music, or a commitment to excellence… so we don't!”
- Jeff Jones, Ratical Jones Guitars Owner, Designer, & Luthier

My  name  is Jeff Jones & I am Ratical Jones guitars. I  have no  employees, this way I ensure every customer is treated like gold and that every guitar is exactly what was ordered no excuses no second best.

I built my 1st guitar 32 years ago and build the odd guitar for a friend here and there until 12 years ago when I started to get  customers with specific needs from there guitars. I then decided to actively  start building guitars for those with specific requirements that  could not  be found in the off the shelf mass produced sub standard guitars. I  take the time to  research all the parts that  are needed to achieve the play-ability and sound that are needed to  fulfill the specific need of the individual player, that is woods hard ware fit and feel  of necks and  bodies. I  have clients that  have been playing for  decades and no longer like to strap on a 15 pound guitar for a night but still like the sound they get from it so that’s where I come in to fulfill those needs. This not only applies to new custom guitars but to  the modification to existing ones new fret boards, broken necks , bad wiring,  ill fitting hard ware. It is amazing  what can be done when the vision is clear and even when it’s not with guidance and experience Ratical Jones Guitars can make it happen for  you. All this and keeping the price in a working persons budget.

In a typical month, I’ll be busy sketching guitar designs, sourcing raw woods and materials, creating all sorts of sawdust by building guitars from scratch, spraying guitars in our paint booth, and fine-tuning, testing, and playing our guitars prior to shipping them out to customers all around the world. I've made it fun, efficient and affordable for folks to design, purchase and play their very own pro-grade custom guitar.
