"WORKHORSES OF ART"

 

In a small workshop in Muenster (Germany) some of the world's finest electric guitars are made.

Luthier Oliver Baron builds every instrument himself, from buying and seasoning the wood to the final setup. Thorough craftsmanship takes time, which allows no more than 20 guitars to leave the shop every year.

 

Built without compromise or hurry, Helliver Guitars combine the look and feel of classic instruments with unsurpassed playability and ergonomics. Expect a kind of sound and resonance which is rarely found in modern instruments.

 

The exclusion of pretentious kitsch makes way for real classiness and intrinsic values. Sound and functionality have the highest priority and and won't be sacrificed for any kind of visual or technical gimmick. Every detail is important, every Helliver Guitar a Workhorse of Art!

 

There is an intensive exchange between the musician and Helliver Guitars in every custom order. Every guitar is a lifelong partner for creativity and not supposed to sit in a cabinet.

 

Welcome to Helliver Guitars!

Each Helliver Guitar is a unique instrument with its own character. This is now underlined by an individual name which is given to each guitar. A custom ordered guitar will be named by the customer, all other instruments by Helliver, according to their visual and sonic properties. Depending on the model, the name is either engraved into the electronics cavity or into the pickguard. Each name will only be used once.
