Are Bootlegger Guitars just Gibson or Fender knockoffs? No; In my opinion They're Better.
Better from the top down; Ownership, Dependability, Reliability, Playability, and Rockability. Added to kick ass guitars, each comes in its own custom hard case, with a flask thrown in for good measure.
These guitars are under priced at 75% less than Fender, and 80% less than Gibson, while playing equally well or better than their legacy counterparts. I'm proud to endorse Bootlegger Guitar.
Bootlegger Guitars are quality, professional level instruments at a entry level/intermediate price.
They are well made and play and sound great!
I play a Rye and a Deville and I love them!!
Chuck and the crew are great guys who will take excellent care of you.
I highly recommend them!!!

Thank You Keith
I am so happy with this guitar! I scoped it out for a good six months before finally making the purchase. Every part of the transaction was smooth - I even received direct emails from real people. I know; what a concept! There is not enough space here to go into specifics about the guitar, but I will say that, for the money, I've never found a better instrument. I'm already using it for recording and have gotten nothing but compliments on the looks. Thanks for the great instrument and service!

Wow. What a Guitar
Thank you Bootlegger! My guitar arrived as beautifully as I expected.
The quality of this instrument makes itself know as soon as you have it in your hands!
The “shallow C” neck. is absolutely love! And the sound from the HSH Tesla pickups, 5 way switch and push pull pots give you versatility to jam your way!
This guitar is obviously labor of love. Thank you Chuck and the collaborative work from Steve Stine and Reno Paulson!
Beautiful guitar. Excellent communication. Awesome seller. Highly recommended! EXTREMELY cool! 🎸 Would DEFINITELY buy from again!!!! 👍
First-class all the way!
I bought this guitar to celebrate the birth of my first grandchild. Like many here, this guitar exceeded my expectations. It is not a Fender or a Gibson clone, not a Fenson. either. It stands right alongside my higher-priced guitars. Setup was great right out of the case. The appointments on the guitar make it unique (headstock design, diamond inlays, neck shape). Plays great, sounds great, looks great. Rec'd the guitar 3 days after order & was also contact by the owner of the company!

I wanted a headless guitar and searched Amazon first. At that time this Spade guitar was not listed on Amazon.I purchased it from bootlegger president Chuck Wilson. I am very pleased with it, and impressed with the outstanding
service I received. Chuck emailed me when his tech did the final set up before delivery to me. When it arrived Chuck had placed 2 of his business cards in the case. I emailed him that I was very happy with the guitar. Shortly after he personally called me to follow up and if I had any questions. Chuck personally design this 2nd version Spade. I feel like I bought a custom shop guitar for a unbelievably low price. To me this could be easily sold as $1,000 plus guitar. There are you tubes videos on this guitar but their recorded sound quality does not do it justice. I played it through a VOX modeling amp and it sounded awesome. My wife thinks it sounds better than my Fender Deluxe telecaster. I have been playing since 1962 and owed all the top end guitars from Fender, Gibson, Gretsch ,Brian Moore, Ovation etc. This one has the most bang for the buck. Easy to tune, perfect action, easy to string. Very easy to play the higher frets. Wood looks great Neck is finished beautifully, pick ups and all black hardware are quality. Playing comfort is great ,its light weight,but not too light. I spent hours researching headless guitars and this one was my top choice by far. FYI clip on tuner fits nice, strap fit is just right and guitar sits safely on my old stand. If your ready to dive in to a headless guitar this is it!.
