Rat Bait Guitar

This new looking guitar body is made from Paulownia, reconstructed and repaired in our rat infested shed in North Devon. Finished in dark oak stain and oiled. This Nashville style guitar sounds very old school. The chrome neck pickup and middle single pole pickup are vintage ones that are at least 20 / 25 years old. The bridge pickup, electrics, machine heads, bridge and Jack socket are new. The black 3 ply scratchplate has been salvaged from a defunct Telecaster.

Rat Bait Guitar

Our brand mission

We use parts from the 1970s right up to the 2020s, mixed together to give the experience of 'heritage', not the fake visual illusion of 'relic'. The aim is to produce guitars that are very playable and sound better than the average homogenised crap that is out there. They won't be shiny and shimmering - they will look rugged, with a few battle scars but they will compliment any serious guitar collection.

Rat Bait Guitars are different from other guitars in several ways. They are made from recycled materials, discarded, broken, damaged guitars, wood gathered from various sources, such as old furniture, fence posts, roof constructions, flooring, and more. These discarded bits of timber and defunct guitars are reused and reshaped into guitars that have a unique character and history. The materials are upcycled, repurposed, and recycled, which means that it reduces waste and saves resources.

Rat Bait Guitars are custom built, which means that each guitar is one of a kind and not repeatable.
