Mr. Rick Mariner built a Haywire 335 Strat for me and it’s the very best guitar I have ever owned. I had two Gibsons,ES175 and the ES350 and this 335 Strat plays better. I’ve been playing for 62 years, this guitar is most outstanding.

It arrived looking factory fresh and it is stunning.
It has a sunburst gloss finish medium light alder body and a vintage maple ’59 roundback neck. Rick Mariner is very precise in describing his guitars, but that does not prepare you for how beautifull his instruments sound, look and feel.
He is obviously passionate about his work, and wants his customers to be completely satisfied with their purchase.
Rick’s attention to detail, with his guitars, his customers needs and communication is second to none.
That’s why I bought another Haywire Custom Guitar just a few weeks after buying the first.
I strongly recommend Haywire Custom Guitars to anyone thinking of buying a guitar.
All the best Rick,
I hope your business goes great,you really deserve it.

I received the guitar today and I have only one word to say…… INCREDIBLE!
This thing plays as good if not better than my Les Paul and sounds better too which is no surprise as it always had better tone than any of my guitars. Thanks for the attention to detail on the neck and the finish. I would honor being any kind of reference for you and I will certainly pass your name around for those who are in need of your services.
Thanks for the T-Shirt as well.
I will be in touch with you on future setups and a tele build

I spent a lot of time researching Strats to find the right one for my collection, and now feel very lucky to have found Haywire Guitars and Rick Mariner. The finish on the body is stunning, and the workmanship on every part of the guitar is outstanding. Just as important for me is the customer service. I spent quite a bit of time talking to Rick via phone on two separate occasions, both about the guitar I was interested in and generally chatting about guitars. I felt as though we had been friends for years. He answered all of my questions and offered great information about guitar specifics. Would highly recommend Haywire Custom Guitars to anyone looking for the highest quality in a guitar – 100%.
