Hand-crafting custom guitars & basses since 1988.

Here you will find numerous musicians, singers and song writers and groups who endorse Legend Custom Guitars and Zane O’Brien as an experienced luthier and guitar builder.

Gordon Blackmore- Bassist

Whatever idea you have, Zane can build it. I wanted a bass with a Fodera yin yang style body with a Fender Jazz neck. PRESTO!!! He builds exactly what I wanted. I had a pale cheap looking bass and Zane gave it a makeover and now it’s my #1 instrument. His guitars are not only enjoyable to play they are also hand crafted works of art. Zane combines the eye of craftsman and the ears of a musician. His attention to detail and love of what he does shine through each one of his creations. His instruments are beautiful to behold, a joy to play and each one as unique as the player fortunate enough to have one. I highly recommend checking him out. I am thrilled with the basses he has built for me.

The Stampeders

In the past few years we have had two of our vintage guitars restored and completely refinished by Zane O’Brien of Legend Custom Guitars. We were very pleased with the results and must say that his finish work is exceptionally good. We would definitely use his services again. We were very happy to have met Zane through our mutual friend, Bob Young and were very pleased with the two Legend Guitars he supplied for our Halifax Casino show in February 2014 and how well they played and sounded.

Zane's workmanship and professionalism comes at a time when great craftsmanship is hard to find. I've known him for a very long time, and have had great results with everything from repair, to maintenance to custom building my Legend Telly… It's the guitar I have used for tons of my on-the-road work!  Very happy that there's a guy like this just down the road from me!  5 Stars, Zane!

I depend upon Zane to keep my guitars in top playing condition and have never been disappointed. And a 1920s Regal octofone that was unplayable, now has it’s voice heard in my studio, thanks to his careful expertise. I appreciate his low-key proficiency (and he ain’t bad in the high keys, either!) and very reasonable fees.

Thanks Zane!

I’ve known Zane O’Brien for a number of years and have always admired his work. Zane is a master craftsman with incredible attention to detail. I would not hesitate to use Zane’s talents if I had any serious re-finishing or modification to any of my guitars.
