I was initially a little nervous about sending my PRS Hollowbody in to be refinished, however Cam's work has exceeded my expectations. He perfectly produced what I had in mind and took great care of my number one guitar, with an excellent setup and fret-dress to go with it. I would highly recommend Custom Guitar works for refinishing a guitar or a setup.

I am fortunate to own a 59 True Historic Les Paul and a 64 vintage Telecaster. Both had minor chips to the finish and I was reluctant to have them repaired as I thought it would only potentially make the damage worse or not blend correctly. I was very pleasantly surprised with the flawless repair work done by Cam with superb original finish and paint matching. I can't recommend Custom Guitar Works highly enough. Thank you, Cam. Brilliant work.

I wanted to do a custom build copy of a '69 Fender SCP Precision bass so went ahead and ordered all the parts through Warmoth in the USA, I called Cam from Custom Guitar Works to discuss painting the body and relicing the bass to look as close to the pic's I'd showed him, I said I wanted it to look and feel like that favourite pair of old jeans you just can't throw out, the end result was way beyond my expectations and not only does it look and feel like a bass I've played every day for 40+ years, when I got home and plugged it in it sounds and plays better than my genuine Fenders. Cam has made my dream bass come alive and surpassed all expectations for how it would turn out, I simply love it!!

Cam @ custom guitar works really knows his stuff. Took my mij jazzmaster (sunburst) to get refinished in sonic blue, have a new pickguard put on it and repaired/setup with a new bridge. This was accomplished 10/10 i could not be happier with the results. Highly recommended :)

Got myself a Rees custom the other day and well........ Playin through a Marshall DSL40C, with the neck pickup its a classic strat, Stevie Ray all over, drive the volume hard on the guitar with some distortion and its Malmsteen, but go to the Seymour Duncan bridge pickup and its an open exhaust hotrod, the drive from the pickup is monster. I love this guitar, paint job is awesome, the guitar feels solid, neck is great to play, action is low without buzzing.

I am pretty sure I will be back for another Rees custom in the future.

Thanks Cam for a great guitar.

Firstly, let me thank Cam and crew for the amazing work on reliving my MIJ '62 Fender. I couldn't ask for better. Right from the beginning Vam worked with me to determine how it would look with the Daphne Blue I wanted. Communication was first class. Cams attention to detail is incredible and when there was one area on the guitar body that I just wasn't loving, Cam got into it and reworked it. Just amazing. Already I have two mates that will be sending guitars his way in the new year. Btw, the final set up has been one of, if not the best, I have had done in decades. So yes, highly, highly recommended as the best in Aust without doubt in my view. Thanks, Cam, just love what you did!

Hi Cam. Sorry for the delay in posting this, but I just can't find the time to put down my new guitar. FYI I've been playing for over 30 years, owned a Wolfgang, Music Man, Charvel, Ibanez Prestige, played mostly 2 nights a week in pub rock bands thru JVM 800, 5150, and now the MI Audio Megalith. I can tell you now, when I next buy a guitar it will be from you. Your service is outstanding, the quality is unquestionable, the price puts it in reach. Thank you, I can't take my eyes or hands off it.

I sent my Epiphone SG to Cam with a photo of the concept I wanted-a fire-breathing dragon on a purple background; "purple haze". What I got back was a one-off masterpiece! Anyone wanting a custom guitar paintjob need look no further than Customguitarworks. Thanks, Cam!

Well I picked up my beloved guitar today.
I made the guitar 30 years ago. I wanted to give it a new look. Cam followed my instructions and paid close attention to details, when I got my guitar I was blown away by the finish, the setup, the playability and finally the awesome pickup choice of Cam. It now is one mean growly beast, Thanks again

Had my Strat refinished and a fret dress done by Cam. It looks brand new and plays like a dream. Amazing job.

I believe Cam does the best refinish work in Australia. Not only are his finishes exceptional but his prices are reasonable and he will turn around the job faster than anyone else I’ve ever dealt with. I strongly recommend Cam’s work. Don't take a risk with your guitar, send it Custom Guitar Works. You will not regret the decision.

Hi Cam, The work you did to repair and give a makeover to my '84 Gibson Explorer was AMAZING. Your ability to guide me though the choices and listen to my crazy queries was very professional. At one point I thought I was crazy to repaint a 30year old instrument....but I'm so glad I did. All the new harware, refretting and silky paint job have given this axe a new lease on life.....and she sounds great too!!! Definitely worth sending down from Sydney.

Thanks Again Cam

Wow, Cam Re-finished my worn out '75 Goldtop with a new 70's style Red Sparkle. It just comes to life when the light hits it! Also Changed worn out hardware with Gibson Pure original gear and brought back to life my old frets. All done for a reasonable cost within a month.
Thanks. Garthy.

I had a dream of constructing a Fender T-Bird a while ago, after speaking with Cam about a full custom paint job it really stirred the juices to get it going. After sourcing a T-Bird body and 51' Tele Precision neck I spent an hour or two in Cam's work shop discussing how to create the idea's I had in my head, Cam knew what I wanted and assured me he could make it happen. When I came down to pick the bass up I was blown away by how great it looked, better that I could have imagined, Thanks Cam.

Hi Cam,
I just realised that you had upgraded your website so I though I would add a comment to thank you for the awesome job you did on my Iron Maiden strat. When I walked in with and album cover, a concept and a box of parts I had no idea it would turn out so well. Everything from making all the crucial bits of art fit in, to the hidden messages on the headstones, you simply made my vision a reality. Awesome work. Already used it on a recording and it sounds great too !! Thanks..

Cameron did a great job with mending the paint work that got chipped away on my Gibson The Paul II. He takes great pride in the work he does and I am very happy with his work. Very easy to deal with and would go back to him to service my guitars. Thanks Cam for the wonderful work!

I recently had my musicman bass custom painted by Cam. I would not hesitate in recommending Cam's services to anyone, he assisted in recommending a job that had made my bass completely unique using crystals that have been grown by hand . Cam is a complete professional and keeps you up to date with the progress of the job. Thanks again Cam keep on rocking

So when my wife dropped my Fender Tele on Christmas Day 2011 and chipped/cracked the paint and finish down to the timber, I enquired with a few Sydney based repairers to have it fixed. All were met with knockbacks suggesting it was too hard to match the colour. I stumbled across Cam's site and sent it to Melbourne to be repaired. When I got it back, I had to double check it was the same guitar. An absolutely flawless repair job that would make Fender proud. Not a blemish on it. Thanks Cam !!!!!

The double neck I just purchased has exceeded my expectations. Very well crafted and sounds great too. I was even happy with how well crafted the hardcase I purchased off you also was made. Thanks Cam.

Hi Cam – I ordered a guitar from advertising that had been read. At this point in time, we also ordered a hard case made to fit the guitar for added protection to the guitar. This took 8 days to come from Victoria to North Queensland – such is our transport system – I think at least 2 days were on ‘camel train’. Upon opening the case, and under all the bubble wrap, we found this beautiful looking instrument [Tobacco Sunburst R335 guitar] - to be continued

Just a note to say I am the guy that bought your Zak Wilde copy from Berwick Music Centre.
So far I love it, its an eye opener and feels great to play as well even tho I sing in our band more than play but that's changing since I got it.
It's made me want to play and learn more.
Also you did a service on my ibanez axstar. Thank you so much when I got it back I was surprised on how good it was, just like brand new.
Regards mate and thanks again

Two of my three main guitars were made up of spare parts that I gave to Cameron to put together, both of which he did an exemplary job on. He even figured out how to install Fernandes sustainers into them for me, now I won't play without them!!!
One of them also required an extensive re-painting job, and he did a great job of that as well!!
Our bass player also keeps him constantly busy with everything from custom paint-jobs to whole basses built from scratch.

Cam,
....I wanted to thank you for your work on 'Keeley' Jackson. The instrument is completely different to the original DK2M. I have had offers in the several thousands of dollars for it and has converted many a PRS player to Jackson. This thing plays like a dream. On stage, it literally lights up the room with an awesome green hue when the stage lights are off - just awesome! Again, Congratulations.
I look forward to our next project.

Hello Cameron,
My name is Matt from the band 79revisited. I have just bought the double neck bass (fretted5/fretless4) and I'm absolutely blown away by it!!! I thank you for your professionalism, your service (and your love of heavy metal too, hahaha). Through my rig it sounds awesome!! I love the colour, shape, feel, etc. but most of all, the sound! I've already found a dozen places where I can use it in our set. It's the most perfectly balanced instrument I've ever played. I will return for more work (and basses of course hahaha). You're a great and accommodating chap.
Thank you again, mate!!!

Hi Cam,
This Guitar kicks all kinds of ass! I find it easier to play and use altogether than my mate's $1300 Rhoads Jacksons!
The pickups are awesome and they pick-up and sustain harmonics really well. Not to mention the look of the thing, the quality of the finish is top notch.
Cheers mate!!

Hey Cam!
Aaannyway, just wanted to say - Wow. Seriously, I'm absolutely blown away mate! I've never played a guitar that has looked better, sounded better, or handled better in my life. It's so smooth to play - And it absolutely cranks, no joke about it!
This is seriously a mean guitar in every sense of the word. You've brought this beast to life for me, and made it roar. I can't tell you how happy I am with it - I'm looking forward to really putting it through it's paces this Saturday in it's live debut with Raw Machine :D
Everybody who has seen it has literally been amazed by the level of workmanship that has gone into it - I still haven't stopped showing it off yet!
I would (and have!) recommend(ed) you to anybody who's willing to listen - A-grade materials and quality workmanship for a damn good price.
Looking forward to working with you again!
Cheers

Custom Guitar Works is an excellent guitar custom shop.
Basically, I am a typical J Rock player and Custom Guitar Works modified my guitar exactly the same as I wanted with great communication, the workmanship is incredible.
The custom paint, frets and bindings were done with every detail carried out perfectly as I requested.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND Custom Guitar Works!!"
