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!

If your interested in a custom guitar

then please feel free to drop me a line,

or even just let me know what you think!
