OafLogoExtended Range Custom Guitars

Oakland Axe Factory (OAF) is our extended range guitar brand.  We started OAF back in 2007 and were one of the original extended range and extended range headless builders.  As opposed to our Drinkwater Guitars product which is all made in Oakland, ME, all OAF product is made by Fast Guitars in Delta, BC to our specs and we couldn’t be happier with the results.  In fact, Fast Guitars now handles many of our custom OAF orders entirely!

The OAF range consists of: SS7 and SS8, JM7 and JM8, Falcon6, 7, and 8, Comp4 bass neck and the NorthStar6.

OAF also craft handmade accessory items right out of our shop in Maine.
