Overview

Bill Meeker and David Haines started American Showster in 1986 out of New Jersey by building custom guitars that pull their design language from the world of hot rod motorcycles and classic cars. The company produced custom instruments in the US with template models manufactured in Czechoslovakia until 2004. Bill Meeker passed away in 2011 after briefly reviving the company. 

The Biker series featured guitars that used motorcycle gas tanks as bodies. Most featured dual humbuckers with a tune-o-matic bridge.
