Bootlegger Guitar boutique guitar and tube amp builder.
Featuring vintage, classic looks, beautiful mahogany and maple hardwoods, semi hollow-body string through construction, single cut F hole, vintage Tele style bridge, P90 neck and single coil bridge Tesla pickups. This guitar rocks from Hank to Hendrix and everything in between.
We slightly scaled down the body from the heavier vintage guitars for both comfort and weight. At 7 pounds, it's comfortable to play for hours. With our new 3x3 head design and our Bootlegger logo & whiskey art combined with our Jack Daniels (borrowed) fretboard diamonds its looks are at home in any roadhouse or dance hall.
Our Bootlegger neck is best likened to a PRS JM shape, Fender modern C shape or a Gibson Slim Taper D shape for feel and playability. It is by far the most easy and recognizable shape for guitar players across the board. It delivers that vintage feel with a modern twist to keep it relevant and functional for guitar players playing any genre of music. You make no sacrifices with a Bootlegger Guitar.
Like Single Barrel Whiskey it is of a premium class, elegant, smooth and refined. Its sound is all about tone, resonance and rock.

Beast ! No cons what so ever !!!!!!!!!
Who-da-thunk ! After playing for 50+ years, thought the Spade would be a good guitar to practice on, Yup, but actually I'll be using her live. Chuck gives a rather complete description of the pros and cons, but in reality there are more pluses. Build quality is excellent, from the fret work to the hardware. It's really stable, and didn't take long to get used to the feel (gotta stop tryin' to fine tune the invisible tuners on the headstock though).Only needed some minor set up tweeks right out of the box (neck was arrow straight, needed some relief for my style) Even though it has the "dime" pots, the cavity is shielded, the pups are well balanced and can roar ! As primarily a Strat player, love the scale on this, and the ability to get vintage bucker tones without switching guitars.

I took a chance with Bootlegger and purchased a Single Barrel hollow body. When the guitar arrived I was very pleased with the construction. Maple neck is a little thick but plays like butter. Tone settings are diverse and the all maple body had a nice glassy finish. Even better is Mr. Chuck Wilson of Bootlegger who is a pleasure to do business with. He communicated with me every step of the way and made sure I got a fair deal. These are fine people marketing really good guitars.
Very smooth transaction. Bought it when they were still being fabricated in Korea...pretty fast delivery considering that!! Chuck kept in touch and made sure I was happy. The guitar arrived today and looks great. My buddies at Sam Ash say it plays well and sounds good....haven't had a chance to play it myself at home but I am sure I will like it. Again, thank you Chuck!!!
