Ryan Adams is 'losing his mind' over this D.M.-made guitar

On any given night, notable musicians from around the globe take the stage wielding guitars created by the Des Moines-based company BilT Guitars.

And now the company can add acclaimed songwriter Ryan Adams’ name to the already impressive list of clientele.

Adams and the Iowa-based custom guitar company connected on Instagram days after BilT created an account on the social media platform, said Bill Henss, 35, BilT co-owner. A few conversations later, the company was working on a new instrument for the award-winning musician.

The guitar built for Adams, based off BilT’s ‘El Hombre’ model, displays a captivating large-flake, green sparkle burst on the body. It’s a mid-1960s Japanese-influenced guitar, featuring four Lollar Firebird pickups and an ebony fingerboard.

Tim Thelen, BilT co-owner, said Adams' respect in the industry as a songwriter and producer proves to lend more credibility for BilT's already deep list of clientele.

"He’s just a super respected guy in the industry," Thelen said. "He oozes credibility."
