Our Customers Love Their Guitars

BOSSMAN

“I just received my new Bossman Oyster Cult. I am beyond happy with this guitar. I took it to my guitar guy for a quick set-up before a show, he could not find any issues to fix, pots and tuners were great! He was extremely impressed with this guitar. I have owned many Gibson’s, and I can already tell I will like this guitar every bit as much as any LP I have owned over the years. I can’t wait for the show tonight to play this amazing guitar. Thanks so much!”

SOUTHERN BELLE

“We just finished a song (using my Nashville Southern Belle for the lead guitar track) and some rhythm with my Bossman. I’ll send you a link when it’s mastered so you can hear it. Damn, VERY impressed how well the Southern Belle sounds!!! Thank you for giving us such a fantastic instrument at a ridiculous price (this guitar beats most F****** guitars that cost 10X’s as much).”

LADY LUCK

"I just received my Queen of Spades (my 4th HLK guitar) and it is AWESOME! Well balanced, plays great and sounds amazing. Fit and finish is perfect. Thank you for supplying such good quality guitars at a totally affordable price. I have a lot of guitars including a Gibson SG, a Fender Strat and a few higher quality Ibanez’s. Your Guitars play and sound just as good. My biggest problem is which HLK to play when I head into my studio. Although I’ve been having a hard time not grabbing the Lady Luck (being the newest one). Keep up the great work. Definitely one happy customer.”
