Custom guitar straps as gifts:
"The guitar strap is unbelievably gorgeous! I can't even begin to imagine how many hours that took. You are exceptionally talented!!!
I don't think he put the strap down last night. He could not believe how detailed it was. He was blown away. (He even told me that he played better guitar because of his new strap! Ha ha).
Thank you for making our online collaboration a positive experience. It is a little scary to purchase a custom piece without having the opportunity for a face to face meeting. You are a true professional and a rare talent. I would, and will, recommend you to anybody in the market for a custom strap or guitar design.
Thank you again for everything!"
Custom guitar strap for Noah:
"Burn Method caught the vibe and completely captured my vision with this strap. The price was right and the work was excellent. They worked with me to narrow in on what I was looking for and they created the strap I've always wanted. If you aren't hip to BurnMethod, get hip, Lu and Matt are the best, and their work speaks for itself."

Guitars & Custom Work
Collaboration with Luke @ Sheridan Guitars for Ric Lubell:
"Giving credit where it's due, my friend Lyu Ba of BurnMethod.com designed and burned the beautiful winged beast that I will be playing on for years to come, and did an OUTSTANDING job on it I must say. She incorporated my inner beast into the body with her magic touch and supreme intuition... If ANYONE out there wants to customize their axe, or buy a custom-burned strap, you CANNOT get a better job done ANYWHERE!!! Thanks, Lyu - You're the BEST!"
New owner of BurnMethod's customized vintage Univox bass, the Higher Flyer:
"It looks fuckin' amazing!!! EVERY person who sees the bass tells me how cool it is ;-)"
His bands: Talia & Guttercats
Nick was so into the look of the bass, he decided to order the same finish on another of his old Univox bodies. Thanks, Nick!!
Inscribed commemorative ukelele for Bonnie (Bonnie & Clyde Broadway Musical):
"She took one look at it and cried for about 3 minutes straight. She couldn't believe it!! So thank you :)"
A personalized thought makes an already great gift so much better.
Surface engraving on tele body:
Britt wanted to put together his own ultimate guitar. We lightly burnt a simple surface design of a dogwood flower branch to complement the comfortable natural wood look he was aiming for.
