CCD logo

The G&L Custom Creations Department brings together a team of our most experienced craftsmen, in a venue where they find inspiration to explore ideas with freedom from normal production requirements. The only requirement is that every CCD instrument must embody distinctive tonal or visual characteristics which sets it apart from the range of custom-optioned instruments that are built on a regular basis. While CCD instruments are not regularly available for order, these instruments are build to the same superb standard of craftsmanship as our ongoing range of hand-crafted G&L instruments.

Originally, the Custom Creations Department team intended to produce only Limited Edition instruments, where a fixed number of a particular instrument would be produced. While the CCD team continues to offer Limited Edition instruments, they have chosen to give themselves more flexibility with the Special Build concept. The Special Build formula allows the Custom Creations team to decide when to build some of any instrument they wish, without any obligation to build a particular number of instruments or even complete them within a particular time period. This freedom and flexibility affords the CCD team an ideal environment to let their creative juices flow.
