We are super excited to add Bilt Guitars to our family! Bilt has been making some of the coolest guitars out there for the past 10+ years, with a vibe that is all their own and that truly stand out. Each one made 100% by hand with choice tonewoods, custom electronics, and beautiful finishes by a small team in Des Moines, Iowa with one simple goal: To build reliable guitars that stand the test of time, and most importantly...providing players of all styles inspiration to make music!

Brand new Merc from Bilt, truly deserving of the #1 marker and performs as you would expect any machine in this perfectly done GT Blue finish would! A refreshing take on the custom Strat platform - bringing in some welcomed upgrades such as a modern radius and electronics, while exemplifying true old school handmade craftsmanship and build quality that you just don't see enough anymore. The Lollar Blackface single coils compliment the snap of the Alder body with a nice well rounded punch, and the 5-way helps dial in any classic Strat tone you could think of. The little touches such as the matching headstock and custom racing stripes really come together with the overall build quality and feel for a truly winning combination that just begs to be played!
