About This Listing

Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..

One of our newest additions to the Lawman Guitars BiLT line of fine guitars. And our very first BiLT Bass guitar ever offered…Its awesome!!

Be sure to check out this awesome bass on our Video Demo!

A Brand New Old Stock 2019 BiLT Corvaire Bass Guitar with original TKL Hardshell Case. This is a new model for the BiLT Brand and its really really cool…It was made a custom order and was never shipped. I had seen it around the shop before and the BiLT guys finally offered it to me. I am so excited. Its only one of 10 in existence and it is so cool. How about those see thru F Holes… Just like the Ampeg basses of the 1960’s. We sold a Corvaire 6 string guitar two years ago and this is the first bass in this cool body style I had seen!

It comes in the awesome Gloss Black Color, F holes go thru the body like an old Ampeg Bass, and check out the full body Pickguard…Really cool look…It has the upgraded Lollar Thunderbird Pickups in both the Bridge and Neck Position.   It has a full 34 inch scale neck that feels like a Fender and the nut measures 1 ¾ inch… Also upgraded Omega Bass Bridge and HipShot Deluxe Tuners. What a Bass guitar!! Brand New but it has been around the shop for about 2 years now. There may be a slight ding somewhere. Its beautiful and mint but probably not perfect.

I played this awesome guitar in the BiLT Shop then proceeded to demo it in another shop and played it for about and hour. What a great guitar. Incredible action and the pickups make you feel like a ROCK STAR! They are so powerful…Cool cool guitar.

Lawman Guitars is now an Authorized BILT Guitar Dealer. These really cool Handmade guitars are made right here in Des Moines Iowa. Built by two Luthiers Tim Thelen and Bill Henss…They started building custom guitars for a great line up of Bands, such as Imagine Dragons, Nels Cline of Wilco, Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit and many others. Notable players from the Des Moines Music Scene include Envy Corps and The Nadas.

Here is some info on the builders…


BilT Guitars is owned and operated by Bill Henss and Tim Thelen in Des Moines, Iowa. Rather than go into the usual bio stuff, we thought you might like a look at our philosophy about making guitars.

We're a small company

Unless the proverbial ship comes in, you will more than likely be talking directly to the guy who is going to be carving your neck. You know, we actually like it that way because we can find out exactly what you need and deliver it. We actually care. In our opinion, the best marketing is word of mouth. We will go to great lengths to make sure you are satisfied with your guitar. Happy owners make better music and that makes us happy… so we’re all happy.


We employ the latest building techniques as of about 1949 which includes hand tools and some machines powered by induction motors. Not to say we wouldn’t love having all of our parts arrive via long slow boat from china and we just assemble and pay for magazine ads. That’s just not in the cards, so we have to make everything by hand.

No fancy dancy woods

Not that we don’t appreciate the beauty, there are just plenty of folks making guitars with AAAAAAA, double star, prehistoric growth, eyeball flipping, got it from the bottom of a swamp etc. grades of woods. We drive to our supplier, sort through stacks of alder & maple and pick out nice plain clear boards that rock your face off.


This particular guitar is the Corvaire …Only one in 10 in existence….With the Lollar Thunderbird Pickups, this guitar sounds as cool as it looks. What a Player!

Heres the details of this cool guitar…


Sitka Spruce Top with Mahogany back, sides and a Mahogany core


Mahogany Bound, rosewood fingerboard, 34 scale, Nut 1 ¾ inches


HipShot tuners, Omega Bridge


Full Body in 3 ply Black/White/Black

Stay tuned for more BiLT Guitars from our Shop. I expect to have many more in the future.

Thanks for checking out our new line of BiLT Guitars. Be sure to check out all of our cool vintage guitars as well.

Guitar returns accepted within 7 days with buyer paying all shipping costs. Thanks for respecting that.
