    Hello! I'm new to the community but wanted to introduce myself. My name is Chris, I'm an independent luthier based in Carmel, In. I've been providing repair and restoration services, but over the last year I launched High Point Guitar Co. - providing handcrafted guitars with vintage spirit and a modern touch.

    I will post my new builds here and in the classifieds. I appreciate in advance any support or efforts to help me grow this passion. Best, Chris

    Please visit the showroom for more info: https://highpointguitar.com/?page_id=46

    Thanks again.

    Welcome! We love seeing luthiers post their amazing instruments. Are those Callaham compensated saddles on your Tele builds?

    Welcome! Those are real beauties.

    And I like how on your website, you list prices for services and have the Schedule Service button.

    Best wishes for success with the new guitars!

    Thank you! They are Gotoh Compensated Saddles. BTW- your pickups sound fantastic! I may inquire about using them on a future build. Best, Chris

    We love working with builders & luthiers. It would be an honor to see our pickups land in one of your fine instruments.

    Those look pretty nice! What pickups are on the first guitar? The one with adjustable poles?

    Great looking guitars!

    We're neighbors so maybe we'll run into each other sometime.

    Pretty nice guitars,
    I like obscure horizontal grain one.

    Pd.
    Been in Carmel when driving south Route1.
    That little Bay cove down the Place was amazing. Reminds me of many we got here, all over Spain shore (arquitechture, it counts also).

    Edit1.Foods betcha here huh

    I think that’s a different Carmel. ;-)

    Agreed, Sr Oxidao - that is certainly a beautiful town. I spent a lot of time there when I lived in Califormia.

    Agreed, Mr. Jupiter, that is certainly not the OP's city in Indiana.
