Ordering Process

A non-refundable deposit for half the instrument's cost is required before design and construction begin. The deposit can be paid all at once, or in smaller monthly payments (the first payment holds your place in line). Xylem accepts cash, money orders, checks and credit card payments.

Anthony will never sacrifice quality or rush construction to reach a deadline date of completion, but he will give you an estimated time to completion upon receipt of your deposit. Time to completion will vary depending on the nature of your instrument and the number of instruments on order. Anthony will mail or email you an image of the full-size drawing of your instrument for your approval before construction begins.

Xylem will ship or deliver your instrument once it has been paid for in full. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs, insurance fees, taxes and import duties. All sales final. Custom instruments are non-refundable and non-returnable.

Thank you for your interest in Xylem custom basses and guitars!

As a luthier, my goal is to build instruments that will enhance your abilities and inspire you to become a vastly better musician. I'll work with you closely when I design and build your custom bass or guitar to ensure that it is one of the best instruments you have ever played!
