There are many kinds of equipment in the world. I would like to write about equipment with dogmatism and bias. The equipment I would like to introduce this time is BILT GUITARS, a handmade guitar manufacturer in Des Moines, Iowa, USA. Using carefully selected wood, they produce electric guitars with modern specs that include a Mastery Bridge tremolo unit and Lollar pickups. The unusual design is heart grabbing with its offset style body and the start-like head. This time, we will introduce artists who use BILT GUITARS as well.
■ The Envy Corps
Brandon Darner, guitarist for this alternative rock band from Ames, Iowa, USA. With this video alone, you can see that he uses multiple models including the VOLARE and telecaster type.
Likely due to the influence of the plain wood used, the BILT GUITARS have a clear, straight-forward sound. It's also a nice guitar to play using spatial effects such as reverb and delay like Brandon uses.
This next song wasn’t included in live show above, but it is also recommended.
■ Vampire Weekend
An indie rock band from New York, USA. Brian Robert Jones uses cute pink S.S.ZAFTIG.
You can feel the American sound from the video. The guitar used by Brian Robert Jones is the S.S.ZAFTIG. A Mastery Bridge model is used for the hardware, and because it is resistant to tuning deviations and string drops that are relatively common with Jazz Masters and Jaguars, you can perform stress-free.
And the last one
■ Imagine Dragons
An alternative rock band based in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Wayne Sermon uses a golden S.S.ZAFTIG.
All I can say is, the atmosphere and the guitar is amazing. This guitar with a distinctive form and flashy colors will shine through!
So, I wrote about BILT GUITARS this time. I hope you enjoyed it. BILT GUITARS, with its unique attention to sound, materials, hardware and design, will bring you new freedom of expression along with inspiration!
Thank you for reading to the end. See you again!
