Insight & Information
Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask, and some more.
A picture is worth 1000 Watts.
Can I order directly from Iconic?
Sure you can. Many players choose to order from us when looking for a very specific instrument –we’re proud to say these are usually their second or third Iconic!
Why buy at the dealer when I can buy direct?
The simple answer is, because there’s no wait! A long waiting list is a great problem to have, and we’re truly grateful, but part of the reason we’re so busy is because our dealers keep investing and ordering to fulfill demand (thank you!). Dealers will offer sound advice and are always there to setup, maintain or repair your instrument. Don’t forget you can try before you buy, and play Stairway to Heaven at full tilt!
Are Iconic guitars made in the USA?
Hell yeah! Our instruments are proudly made in the United States, carefully assembed, inspected and finished by hand right here in sunny California.
What's up with Iconic "Vintage" models?
We love old instruments! The smell, the faded and checked finish, the worn out (and weakened) electronics, the ridiculous prices… it’s all fascinating, but vintage guitars are far from perfect and, in most cases, too valuable or too finicky to make of them reliable workhorses. Our vintage models were designed to retain all the mojo and playability of a high-mile instrument without any of the setbacks.
Do you paint to sample?
Anything is possible. Wanna match that classic muscle car paint? Inspired by grandma’s avocado-green sweater? Your new hairdo? Chances are we arealdy have that stuff mixed and ready. Maybe not your granny’s sweater.
Can I have a relic finish that's not too beat up?
Yup. Just like in real life, guitars age at different rates. Some are forgotten under the bed for decades while other are put through the perils of the road, dive bars and angry girlfriends (and boyfriends, and pets). We offer different levels of aging.
Your turn. Ask away.
Interested in becoming and Iconic Artist?
Generally speaking, our artists had already been playing Iconic guitars before joining our roster, in some cases we reach out to players we believe would be a good fit. The best partnerships feel symbiotic and organic. We do what we can to help our artists attain their dream guitars, offer support and promote their work. We like to think our instruments influence their path and we are grateful for how they in turn represent and help promote our brand.
