By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): If you’ve never heard of Oil Can Guitars, you’re just like we were a week ago. As the inventors will tell you, there’s been very little true innovation in the guitar world since, well, forever. See for yourself.
The inventors of the guitars were inspired by street musicians in their hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa who are known for their resourcefulness, building amazing instruments out of trash.
And it proved that beautiful music can come from simple materials (you don’t need exotic woods to make a guitar). “Sure, sure, but would a real musician use this Bohemian, oil can guitar to make real music?” you might be asking. Well, it’s a fair question. After all, if you’re going to spend the money on custom oil can guitars, you’ll want more than just a nice conversation piece.
Fortunately, it’s both.
Custom oil can guitars have been used by big named artists from every corner of music. Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. Hozier. Jeff Skunk from the Doobie Brothers. Meghan Trainor. Casey Hooper, best known as Katy Perry’s guitarist. The list goes on, but the truth remains – bonafide artists love custom oil can guitars too.
Now before we show you some of the various custom oil can guitars that have already been created – and to inspire you to create your own – we want to make sure to mention that that minimum order quantity is 100 units, but less can be made with an additional $600 set-up.
