Raato Guitars Pricing

ABOUT GENERAL PRICING

As every instrument is different and built based on customer´s demands - It is impossible to give direct pricing on the website - So I have created pricing that is baseline and includes all basic options.

Upgrades are available and priced per request

 

In-depth pricing of custom options and example pricing of already built models are updated to the site shortly.

 Stay tuned!

Standard Options

   Price Includes

      Following Specs:

    Tonewood 

Standard Wood Options

BODY:

  • Alder

  • Khaya Mahogany

Alder and Khaya are both tonally balanced choices - With Alder being just slightly brighter sounding. Choice between these two is mainly cosmetic

NECK:

  • Sapele - Maple

My personal favourite combination of neck woods - Depending on instrument neck plank will be 5 to 7 piece laminate combining Khaya Mahogany and Hard Rock Maple

These two combined with Ebony fingerboard delivers full-bodied and balanced tone with clarity across the board.

FINGERBOARD:

  • Ebony (African)

I am mainly using Ebony Fingerboards in my instrument - This is due to the fact that it is one of the most durable options - And it sounds just right!

Several options including Standard, Exotic & Green Ebony

    Handcrafted to Your Measurements 

Neck Specifications

CONSTRUNCTION:

  • Bolt-On

As a Standard all instruments are with Bolt-on construction - It gives you stronger initial transient which translates to more attack. And as long as neck pocket is done correctly you won´t loose any sustain compared to Neck-thru or Set-Neck. 

 

NECK PROFILE:

  • Crafted to your Specifications

The Most important feature in guitar when it comes to Playing Comfort - Neck profile must fit like a glove!

I also urge you to try out Raato Asymmetric neck profile which is thicker on the bass side and goes slimmer towards the treble side - It gives you effortless access to fretboard.

 

SCALE LENGTH:

  • Any Standard Scale length up to 28,5"

  • FOR MULTISCALES: Any Scale lengths with Neutral (vertical) Fret on the 9th

You can choose Scale Length to match your needs - As an example standard Gibson Scale Length is 24,75" as compared to Fender  25,5"

As for Multiscales I recommend 0,25" change to scale length between Strings - This will give you still very natural feeling when playing Eg for 6-string 27,75" - 26,5" / 7-string 28" - 26,5"

WHY CHOOSE MULTISCALE?

Two main reasons:

1) Playing ergonomics - Multiscale gives you more natural wrist position when playing across the fretboard - And if you think how your fingers travel, it matches very closely to multiscale fan created by frets

2) Lower tunings - You´ll get longer scale for bass side while still maintaining shorter scale for treble side for easier soloing.

FINGERBOARD RADIUS:

  • Any Standard Radius

Fingerboard radius means the curvature on the fretboard - You can choose one to your liking from 7,25" up to 26"

As an example 7,25" Radius is familiar from vintage Fender´s and is very round - As compared to 26" Radius which is almost flat

 

FRETS:

  • Material: Nickel/Silver

  • Size: Vintage, Vintage Jumbo OR Jumbo

You can select your preferred Fret wire from following sizes

Vintage, Vintage Jumbo Or Jumbo 

Fret Material is Extra Hard Nickel/Silver

 

FRETBOARD MARKERS:

  • Luminlay Glow-In-the-Dark

As a standard your instrument will be equipped with Luminlay Side Dots. You can choose either Green or Blue Glow-In-the-Dark option.

 

HEADSTOCK:

  • Any Raato Design

You can select one of the existing Raato Headstock designs - Headstocks are designed so that string lines are as straight as possible for best tuning stability.

Tuner Configs varies depending on design and string count

 

INLAYS:

  • Raato R-logo

Raato R-logo can be positioned to 12th fret or Headstock - You can Select its colour from various options - Also Glow-In-The-Dark option

Finish Options

BODY COLOUR:

  • Natural 

  • 1-Colour Stain

  • Aged

BODY FINISH:

  • Satin Clear Coat

I personally prefer to see the beauty of the wood and I use Dyes & Stains directly to the wood - Which is why as a standard option you won´t find any solid colour paint jobs.

Aged option will give different results depending on the wood it is used - It gives wood natural weathered look. Especially beautiful with Khaya & Sapele (as pictured on the right)

NECK COLOUR:

  • Natural

  • 1-Colour Stain

  • Aged

NECK FINISH:

  • Satin Clear Coat

  • (Oil/Wax)

As neck finish I recommend 2k Satin Clear Coat - It feels smooth and won´t get sticky even on the hottest summer nights. And most importantly - It is durable and gives best protection for the neck.

Oil/Wax treatment can be done too - But with disclaimer that It will require more maintenance from You.
