Beautiful guitar. Excellent communication. Awesome seller. Highly recommended! EXTREMELY cool! 🎸 Would DEFINITELY buy from again!!!! 👍
The Single Barrel is a toast to tradition. It comes from a proud lineage of guitars made to create a premium sound. This guitar will handle it all with comfort; from Country to Blues and Rock. With on board Tesla P90 and Single Coil pickups This guitar rocks from Hank to Hendrix.
We use exclusively the highest quality wood, Mahogany body / Maple neck and fretboard. The design is reminiscent of the great vintage guitars built by master builders in the 50s and 60s. With our new 3x3 head this design is all Bootlegger Guitar, and in the tradition of Bootlegger Guitar.
Introducing our Single Barrel Gen 2. We first introduced the SB Gen 1 in 2016. We have made significant changes with the Gen 2. First our new 3x3 head featuring our new logo / design, vintage finish, our 98 proof on the truss cover and Grover licensed tuners.
The pairing of a Tesla P90 on the bridge and Tesla single coil in the neck position truly makes this guitar twang and howl with your tone in the middle. From Hank to Hendrix it ROCKS..
The body is mahogany semi hollow with a single f hole and single cutaway. With the stunning violin vintage burst gloss finish, it has a vintage vibe. The guitar is reminiscent of the great guitars built in the 40s and 50s by builders such as Stella. To continue the vibe we add vintage style binding on the body and neck.
Next to the three-way toggle switch sit the metal volume and control knobs. The neck is C shaped and fitted with our Bootlegger graphite nut. Unfinished Canadian Maple Neck, 22-fret length and maple fretboard with stunning natural grain. Add our J.D. (Whiskey Label) diamond white and black inlay markers and vintage style bindings its smooth aged to perfection.
We believe in taking something of strong heritage and improving on it. The Single Barrel is a nod to the past and now redefined for the contemporary guitar player. It’s an instrument that has withstood the test of time because of how exceptional it sounds. You could say it’s aged to perfection.

Bought on Jan 9th, 2019 by Tom J.
I took a chance with Bootlegger and purchased a Single Barrel hollow body. When the guitar arrived I was very pleased with the construction. Maple neck is a little thick but plays like butter. Tone settings are diverse and the all maple body had a nice glassy finish. Even better is Mr. Chuck Wilson of Bootlegger who is a pleasure to do business with. He communicated with me every step of the way and made sure I got a fair deal. These are fine people marketing really good guitars.Very smooth transaction. Bought it when they were still being fabricated in Korea...pretty fast delivery considering that!! Chuck kept in touch and made sure I was happy. The guitar arrived today and looks great. My buddies at Sam Ash say it plays well and sounds good....haven't had a chance to play it myself at home but I am sure I will like it. Again, thank you Chuck!!!
Bootlegger Guitar "The Hounder" 2015 Violin brown Burst
Great, immediate communication with the seller - even with the east coast/west coast time difference. The guitar shipped quickly and was carefully packed. The Hounder itself is a treasure - action & intonation perfect out of the box, great looking finish, solid feel, very playable. The online pics and videos don't do it justice - much, much more than you might expect from a guitar 3-4x the cost. Highly recommended instrument and seller- thanks Chuck!
