the relevator

Somehow you feel like you’ve seen it before, maybe at that one store that one time or in that magazine that kept coming for free a few years back. Now it’s stuck in your head like the hook from a Pixies song. With it’s offset styling, effects at your fingertips, it’s time to borrow against that 401k.

"I go to guitar stores when I’m on the road and try as many different guitars as I can, most of the time they feel stiff and weird, what surprised me about my BilT was how solid and played-in it felt. When I plugged it in at the studio I immediately heard cool, recognizable tones that I wasn’t getting with my current rig. Great addition to my sound, I love it."
