Phil Sylvester's Art Guitars

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Visual artist Phil Sylvester began making electric guitars because he wanted to figure out what makes some guitars sound better than others. Now his guitars are widely popular across the U.S. and have appeared in publications such as Vintage Guitar magazine and Guitar World magazine. They look like works of art, but he’s a perfectionist about the way they sound, too.
