One of our newest additions to the Lawman Guitars BiLT line of fine guitars.
A Brand New 2017 BiLT Corvaire Guitar with original Hardshell Case. This is a new model for the BiLT Brand and its really really cool…It comes in the awesome Copper and White Dreamsickle Color, F holes go thru the body like an old Ampeg Bass, and check out the full body Pickguard…Really cool look…It has the upgraded Lollar El Rayo Single Coil Pickups in both the Bridge and Neck Position. They used Medium Jumbo fretwire on the medium C shape neck with a 9.5" radius. It has a 25 ½ inch scale neck that feels like a Fender and the nut measures 1 ¾ inch… Also upgraded copper colored Mastery Bridge and Tremelo Tailpiece. That’s a special order item from Mastery.They even had a copper colored tip put on the whammy bar.. That really completes the look of this cool Copper colored guitar… What a guitar!!
I played this awesome guitar in the BiLT Shop then proceeded to demo it in another shop and played it for about and hour. What a great guitar. Incredible action and the pickups make you feel like a ROCK STAR! They are so powerful…Cool cool guitar.
Lawman Guitars is now an Authorized BILT Guitar Dealer. These really cool Handmade guitars are made right here in Des Moines Iowa. Built by two Luthiers Tim Thelen and Bill Henss…They started building custom guitars for a great line up of Bands, such as Imagine Dragons, Nels Cline of Wilco, Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit and many others. Notable players from the Des Moines Music Scene include Envy Corps and The Nadas.
Here is some info on the builders…
BilT Guitars is owned and operated by Bill Henss and Tim Thelen in Des Moines, Iowa. Rather than go into the usual bio stuff, we thought you might like a look at our philosophy about making guitars.
We're a small company
Unless the proverbial ship comes in, you will more than likely be talking directly to the guy who is going to be carving your neck. You know, we actually like it that way because we can find out exactly what you need and deliver it. We actually care. In our opinion, the best marketing is word of mouth. We will go to great lengths to make sure you are satisfied with your guitar. Happy owners make better music and that makes us happy… so we’re all happy.
We employ the latest building techniques as of about 1949 which includes hand tools and some machines powered by induction motors. Not to say we wouldn’t love having all of our parts arrive via long slow boat from china and we just assemble and pay for magazine ads. That’s just not in the cards, so we have to make everything by hand.
No fancy dancy woods
Not that we don’t appreciate the beauty, there are just plenty of folks making guitars with AAAAAAA, double star, prehistoric growth, eyeball flipping, got it from the bottom of a swamp etc. grades of woods. We drive to our supplier, sort through stacks of alder & maple and pick out nice plain clear boards that rock your face off.
This particular guitar is the Corvaire …This particular guitar was finished in Copper and White for the Dreamsickle look that we all remember… Incredible El Rayo Lollar Pickups. This guitar sounds as cool as it looks. What a Player!
