Ali Kat specializes in custom guitars that will rock people's worlds in more ways than one. Founded by Dave Gartland, a sheet metal worker with an undying love of rock 'n' roll and rockabilly music based in Australia, Ali Kat has just released a series of instruments that resemble classic cars. That is because they were made using vintage 50s auto parts from Cadillacs, Chevys and more.

Made for those who love cars as much as they do music, Ali Kat's guitar collection is impressively made by hand. Specializing in aluminum bass guitars, the two major influences behind his work are a perfect match. Not to mention that Ali Kat's guitars make beautiful music as well.
