Rat Bait Guitars: The Eco-friendly and Affordable Choice for Guitar Lovers

If you are looking for a unique and eco-friendly electric guitar, you might want to check out Rat Bait Guitars, a UK-based company that makes hand built guitars and bodies from recycled materials. Rat Bait Guitars was founded by Peter Bright, a guitarist who recorded for labels including Beggars Banquet and various European labels during the 1980s, 90s and 2000s. He started making guitars from salvaged wood and parts in his rat-infested shed in North Devon as a way of utilising a vast collection of salvaged guitar parts he had accumulated over the years.

What makes Rat Bait Guitars different?

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

Secondly, Rat Bait Guitars are custom built, which means that each guitar is one of a kind and not repeatable. Peter Bright designs and builds each guitar according to his own vision and creativity, using a combination of new and reclaimed parts.

Thirdly, Rat Bait Guitars are affordable and accessible for beginners and intermediate players who want a Fender-style guitar without breaking the bank. The guitars range from £125 to £450, depending on the model and features. This is much cheaper than buying a new Fender guitar, which can cost up to £2,000 or more.
