About RH Custom Guitars

RH Custom Guitars are designed and built in Southern California by Rick Harrison. 

Moreover, Rick is an accomplished guitarist and a perfectionist that takes great pride in providing his customers with outstanding guitars. 

Lastly, His guitars are far beyond the normal “custom built” guitar and based on their testimonials those that play these fine instruments agree. 

Rick Harrison creates beauty!

To summarize, RH Custom Guitars are designed to provide the guitarist with a multitude of sounds that can be achieved with only the knobs and bar on the guitar. Therefore, no pedals are needed. Watch this happen when the RH Custom Barnyard Boy is played.

Selected Testimonials

My review of these custom made guitars goes something like this. You will not find another guitar that can do all the things these custom-made guitars can do. First of all the craftsmanship is unsurpassed! Number two, they are very musical sounding guitars. What I mean by that is, the notes you are playing
RH Custom Guitars makes some of the finest handbuilt guitars I’ve ever played! Attention to detail, great action, sound and sustain. All the best attributes of outstanding performance! I am excited about your work! Love the result and cost. Thanks to my friend for the recommendation.
I have seen, played, and experienced a lot of guitars and I don’t own very many… because a lot are way over-rated, but if you want the ultimate in a Custom Shop Guitar, this is it…and they can prove it! The craftsmanship and creative design are second to none and the out of box
