Do you like hand-made unique guitars? You are in the right place. At Perpetrators Of Sound, we believe in originality. Our speciality is creating instruments that we like to play and look at. Our staple creation includes designs featuring tops made of cigar boxes. How does it affect the tone, you may ask? You might not be suddenly a smoking fast player, but you will certainly turn heads. The bodies and necks are made from proven, high quality woods such as basswood, swamp ash, and maple, which really provide the driving force behind the tone. In addition, we use great hardware, and world-class pickups, mostly hand-wound by Rob Timmons at Arcane, Inc. We understand that when it comes to a guitar selection, you have nearly unlimited possibilities. But if you want a great guitar with a truly unique look, P.O.S. might just be the right choice for you.
Some guitars are available for sale immediately, but we can custom make an instrument that you want - you can be a part of the design process, just tell us what you desire.
Finished models are available directly from us, or at Impulse Music Company in Canyon Country, CA. Drop us a line, we can custom make your dream instrument.

This is a one of a kind creation.
Lyle SG - AVAILABLE NOW!
Price: $450 Although this guitar is not an original creation, it deserves a spot in the gallery. It is a Japanese made SG copy. It does have some diferences though. The body is a bit thinner, and the neck profile is somwhat of a mediu D with a thicker than usual headstock. It came to me in a sad shape with much to be fixed. The leveled frets are original, but with good amount of life left. The guitar has a new mint green pick guard with a Suhr DHS+ humbucker, single volume control, matching truss rod cover, new ABR style bridge with conversion studs, and plenty of wear. Sounds great, and plays easy once you get used to the dot inlay an dthe lack of side dots. The neck has a StewMac shim, and the trem arm is long lost. Comes in an original case, which is more for looks than protection. Great player, if you like SGs and vintage japanese guitars.
Flying Pig - SOLD!
Price $2,600 This is a Tele-themed P-Bass. Tele headstock, P-bass heal. 3-piece Swamp Ash body with a cigar box top, maple/maple neck. The bass has been through some rough time. It's been stained, and painted, and painted again. It might have a new neck, although the road worn hardware and vintage '62 Experience pick ups by Arcane Inc. are still there. But it's all just a rumor. Pull the tone knob, and explore an entire new range of tones with the pickups in parallel instead of series.
Fame Whore - SOLD!

This mildly weathered T style guitar is crafted form a 3-piece Basswood, with a single piece Canadian Maple neck with rosewood fretboard and vintage construction. 25.5" scale with 21 vintage medium jumbo frets and a 10" radius will play easier than your true vintage profile. Staggered Kluson tuners ensure a solid tuning stability. Switching is what you are used to: 3-way blade, volume, tone. The 50 Experience 10.5k bridge pick up by Arcane really delivers a classic, powerful sound, while the Bluesdawg by Rio Grande adds deeper grunt. Finished in satin polyurethane.See Richard Duguay play it in the video bellow with his added custom hashtag!
