My name is Ben Berscak, I'm 33 years old from West Berlin, NJ. I've played guitar for 18 years and decided to get into guitar building a couple of years ago. I have a workshop in my garage. I started Berscak Custom Guitars with the philosophy that custom guitars should be available to players at a lower price point, without sacrificing quality or playability. The kit I'll be building is the Cut Your Own Shape Advanced Guitar Kit from I'll be shaping the alder body into a Toronado-like shape with dual humbuckers and it will be a blend of Fender-esque and Gibson-esque design.
