The BilT El Hombre falls in line with any classic humbucking guitar and sports a 24.75” scale length, while The S.S. Zaftig semi-hollow body (or semi-solid as they prefer, hence the S.S.) features a 25.5” scale length.

Des Moines, IA (January 4, 2012) – Burnishing their reputation for vintagey, mashed-up, slightly incomprehensible guitars, the guys at BilT have created two new models, this time with far fewer knobs.

The BilT El Hombre falls in line with any classic humbucking guitar and sports a 24.75” scale length, Lollar Imperial humbuckers, Tone Pros bridge & stop bar. Also available as the Junior, Jr. option with a single Lollar P-90. Players will appreciate the balanced and comfortable feel along with the exceptional Lollar tone.

The S.S. Zaftig semi-hollow body (or semi-solid as they prefer, hence the S.S.) features a 25.5” scale length, Lollar Regal WR humbuckers and the Mastery Bridge as standard. The S.S. Zaftig is very light weight with a timeless free-flowing hollow body voice.

Designed and built at The Lutherie Shop in Des Moines, Iowa, all models are available for direct order. Base price for the S.S Zaftig is $1850.00, El Hombre is $1650.00.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
