Working from artists’ studios in London we paint Strat and Tele bodies, pickguards and scratchplates, with original designs. As you can see from the names of our bodies, inspiration can come from anywhere: a breaking wave, a log fire, even distortion effects. Anything goes, as long as it can be made into an art guitar that’s cool, beautiful and original.

Hand-painted guitar bodies
Home guitar builders, techs and luthiers use our bodies to make unique instruments. High-quality unfinished bodies in two-piece alder, are made for us, either by boutique UK luthiers or Hosco of Japan. We paint them by hand in our London studios and supply them to customers across the world.
Hand-painted pickguards and scratchplates
Our artist-painted pickguards and scratchplates - each a one-off - will personalise and bring magic to the appearance of your existing guitar.
