Rat Bait Guitar Body - UK Made

Rat Bait Guitar bodies are different from others in several ways. 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 upcycled, repurposed, and recycled, which means that it reduces waste and saves resources.
