Kiss of Whiskey

Your guitar. Your finish. Your spirit.

We buy a bottle of your favorite spirits to blend and burst colors during the finishing process of your new axe. Bourbon, brandy, rye, gin... what's your taste? Everything remaining is yours to savor.

When you unbox your new RYE90NiNE from its custom hard case, you'll get to enjoy the very same spirits used to make your guitar's personality pop. From the same bottle. If you're under 21 or don't drink... GREAT! We'll arrange something else special.

Travis Brown Artist Series

EGW Guitars has teamed up with legendary tattoo artist Travis Brown - founder of Fleshworks Tattoo in Olympia, Washington.

Epic through and through.
