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 buyer’s 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’s 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 easiest and most recognizable shape for guitar players across the board. It delivers that vintage feels 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.
