One of our newest additions to the Lawman Guitars BiLT line of fine guitars.

Be sure to check out the Video Demo we did for this awesome guitar!

A Brand New 2017 BiLT El Hombre Guitar with original Hardshell Case. This particular guitar is finished in Glossy Cherry and has the El Hombre Logo’d Acrylic Pickguard and upgraded Lollar RAW POWER Humbuckers in both the Bridge and Neck Position. Also upgraded Crown inlays on the Rosewood board… Honduras Mahagony Solid Body and neck on this beauty… They used Medium Jumbo fretwire on the medium C shape neck with a 12" radius. What a guitar!!

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 El Hombre …This particular guitar was finished in Glossy Cherry over the Honduras Mahogany Body and Neck… and of course sports the awesome TonePros Locking Bridge Assembly. Incredible Lollar Pickups. This guitar sounds as cool as it looks. What a Player!
