I can't say enough about this Sparkle finish. My pics cannot do justice to the beauty of this guitar. A new process developed by BiLT Guitars and it looks incredible. Under the lights, this guitar will be incredible!!

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

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.

Technology!

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.

Heres some info on the incredible Lollar Imperial Pickups...

Low Wind Imperial
Based on lower output PAFs often found in vintage 335s, this pickup boasts a brighter overall tone compared with the standard Lollar Imperial®. This results in exceptional definition for any chord voicing and overall great presence for cutting through the mix. You'll also find the bottom strings hold together noticeably longer without distorting than most humbuckers. The low wind is ideal for the occasional Les Paul that sounds darker in the neck position, or for guitars with darker tones in general. This pickup is also a good match for amps that are heavy in the mid-range, or if you're seeking a clear and tight bass tone. Made with Alnico 2 magnets in the neck and Alnico 5 magnets in the bridge that are degaussed to specific levels unique to the neck and bridge positions. Covers are nickel silver.

DC: Neck 7.0K, Bridge 7.9K

This black beauty weighs 8 lbs 8 ozs...

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