Bootlegger Guitar Rye Outlaw Black On Black

Our Rye has been described as “The Fat Greasy Cheeseburger Of Tone” Perfect with an Ice Cold Craft Beer..


You start with a solid hard body guitar with our signature hot vintage wound Bootlegger pickups add black on black gloss finish with all black aluminum hardware and you have one outlaw rocking tone blues, rock beast. We took our Rye Gen 1 single cutaway guitar slightly enlarged the body and gave it the vintage (milk bottle) Beer Growler style. We then stole from the Harley Davidson Night Train bike the all black look. No chrome just a white binding and our logo on the head.  This is not a high gain guitar, it is on the darker side of tone for the vintage-ness nasty.

The Bootlegger Outlaw

Read our reviews on this guitar, they are the buyers words. Be an outlaw not a sheep farmer. Ride a Harley not an Italian scooter. We don’t build toys only professional instruments for real players all over the world. Yes, this may sound like a load of BS.. But it ain’t, it is real Bad Ass Greasy Cheeseburger Of Tone. Designed by Chuck Wilson Bootlegger Guitar.


All Bootlegger Guitars are built with a graphite nut, medium frets and a comfortable C shaped neck. 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.

Includes custom Stiletto Hard Case and our Bootlegger Flask.

This guitar rocks, plays all styles.
