and are the exact guitars Doyle uses live onstage. (The
model Annihilators are manufactured in our overseas plant) The USA Custom Shop

anywhere from $90-$120, and Australia is generally about the

Where are your Import/Production models made?
A: Our Import line of guitars are Korean
made. Earlier Von Frankenstein models were made in China. The Korean made guitars are absolutely outstanding in finish,
fretwork, materials and playability. They are manufactured to our
exact specifications and high standards. Each Import guitar is
inspected and set-up for optimum playability in our USA shop.
Is it "October" or "Oktober"?
A: It's Oktober. It started
off as October, but we decided we liked it better with a "K". So
we changed the name. Same great company, same great guitars,
Q: Where can I buy an Annihilator/Devilwing?
A: You can purchase the Annihilator and Devilwing Production models and Custom Shop models directly through our Online Store.
Please visit our "Guitars" page.
Q: Can I get Crimson Ghost skulls, etc on my Annihilator guitar/DevilWing bass?
A: The Custom Shop models are able to have different inlays, bridge types, etc, as they are built per-order.
However, the Production models can NOT be changed in their construction. We are also not able to do the
"Crimson Ghost" inlays, as that image is owned by an outside party and not licensed to Oktober Guitars for use.

A: We accept all major credit cards,
either through PayPal or by phone, and personal checks. (once cleared)

Pricing increases with additional services, such as custom inlays, custom body shapes, and custom paint. For an exact price quote, please email us with the details of your request.
Q: What exactly is included in your "standard-style" guitar?

a current Oktober model. (Wraith, Prophet, etc) These "standards" include neck-thru construction, dot,
block or diamond inlays, and your choice of body, neck, and fretboard woods, as well as electronics configuration. (Number of humbuckers, single coils, number of volume & tone, etc) Tremolo systems are additional.
