Hey! So Glad You're Here.
Im 'Blind' John Pilling, Im a 50 year old skate punk who has abandoned the rat race and is attempting to forge a new path, I originally trained, many moons ago, as a furniture designer and maker but life got in the way of actually doing this... so 25 years of wandering and working all around the world Im back, a new me and as I said, Im now forging a new path, a path into building guitars, cigar box guitars, roots instruments and amps and cabs.
I specialise in Relics, relic guitars that look like they are worn in, been to hell and back and somehow survived and everything in-between. Relic cabs and amps that look like they've been built from timber from a 100 year old barn that burnt down 30 years ago!
Each and every piece is unique! I recycle old timber, upcycle old furniture... anywhere I can find usable timber to repurpose, recycle and reuse!
So if you want a custom guitar be it 3 string, 4 string or 6, a boutique amp or custom cab then your in the right place! Even if you just want some irreverent nonsense then in that I can also guarantee satisfaction! We dont take ourselves too seriously around here, I tried being serious once and all I could get was construction work! So sign up, sit back, join in, whatever floats your musical boat you'll find something here! From Punk to blues and back!
