All our instruments can be customized.  Starting with the standard configuration, almost every aspect of the instrument can be customized,  ranging from a different key travel, a few altered notes, to different types of wood for the ends or soundboard. From the 100+ Wakker concertinas delivered to date, almost every instrument is (slightly) different.
