Each case is different when it comes to CUSTOM building. I like to discuss each order with you to ensure an accurate build and complete satisfaction. So, it’s easiest to have a short conversation over the phone to get things started. My policy is Payment-in-Full before each work order is set in motion. I can accept PayPal and USPS Money Orders… Cash or Checks for local folks only.
If you’re needing a Fender clone cabinet, I can Email you the RA Price List for Fender Clone cabs to give you a ballpark estimate. I DON’T CHARGE EXTRA FOR SMALL CHANGES TO THE ORIGINAL DESIGN. Example: You want your new combo cabinet to house a larger or smaller speaker than the original. NO EXTRA CHARGE. And you want it blonde with oxblood grill cloth instead of the original “Blackface” cosmetics. NO EXTRA CHARGE. A different handle or added hardware may be a few bucks more, but I try to keep costs to the customer at a minimum.
Email me with any questions, comments, ballpark quote, etc.
Thanks for stopping by!
ABOUT RAWOODS Custom
RAWOODS Custom started when I was in high school, about 1970.
In the 60’s and early 70’s we bought used amps and fixed them up best we could. My grandfather had a wood shop and taught me how not to cut my fingers off. I built a pair of columns for a BIG stereo I was putting together. 15″ JBL’s in 3/4″ plywood cabs. WOW! We were in heaven. They doubled as PA columns. From then on I decided to build anything I needed rather than settle for expensive mass-produced crap. Well, we all grew up and life got in the way of building bands and equipment. But years later I got the bug again. I had to quit working full-time to move in and take care of my father who has Altzheimer’s. Opening my shop was the only way I could still work and stay at home. Handy, really. So here I am a few hundred cabs later, re-opening RAWOODS for the 2nd time. But this time it’s FULL-TIME ’til ???. Retirement is for quitters. 😉
Quality was the main reason I built those first cabinets years ago. I could afford a decent pair of speakers but I couldn’t accept the lack of quality in “mass-production”… So why not make some sawdust and get what I paid for? Works for me. 🙂 And has worked for many builders and musicians through the years.
One thing is for certain. Quality craftsmanship never goes out of style. So, I guess I’m still in.
