f there’s one way to keep a guitar en­thu­si­ast on the edge of his seat, it’s by pre­sent­ing a swanky, fully cus­tomised elec­tric guitar right be­fore his eyes. Have some­one in mind who would gen­uinely ap­pre­ci­ate this thought­ful ges­ture but not too sure how you can get your hands on said guitar? You might want to sit down and have a chat with the am­i­ca­ble folks from Swee Lee, Asia’s lead­ing on­line re­tailer and dis­trib­u­tor of mu­si­cal in­stru­ments and proau­dio brands.

The jour­ney of for­mu­lat­ing the lon­gawaited dream guitar from scratch be­gins with Swee Lee Mu­sic’s By Ap­point­ment Only ser­vice at Swee Lee’s flag­ship store at The Star Vista. Here, in-house client con­sul­tant Yadni will ac­quaint you with an ex­ten­sive list of cus­tomi­sa­tion op­tions to choose from, in­clud­ing var­i­ous com­po­nents such as colour, choice of wood, shape, in­lay, pick-ups, pat­terns, fret spac­ing and even the type of nuts and bolts which could help dif­fer­en­ti­ate your guitar from the masses.

Cus­tom-built gui­tars are painstak­ingly hand­crafted at Swee Lee and take a min­i­mum of six months to com­plete, while more in­tri­cate mod­els can take up to two years. But know­ing that the store draws de­sign in­spi­ra­tion from mod­els owned by only the creme de la creme of guitar play­ers around the world in­clud­ing the likes of BB King, Eric Clap­tion, John Len­non and Slash, the fi­nal fin­ished prod­uct will be an ab­so­lute marvel to be­hold – even if it takes two whole years to wait. Gift must be pur­chased by 1 March 2019 and or­dered by 1 July 2019. Please email ul­ti­mate­gift­[email protected] sg for en­quiries and to pur­chase.
