Bohemian Guitars is a next generation lifestyle brand that’s defying standards by crafting unique musical instruments from alternative materials, building a socially conscious community inspired by music, and doing it in an environmentally friendly way.
A collaboration between two brothers, Bohemian Guitars was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland musical instruments available today. The inspiration originated 8,419 miles away from Atlanta, in Adam and Shaun Lee’s hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa. There, Shaun was inspired by the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the musicians in South African townships, who repurposed discarded materials into playable instruments. When Shaun first heard the amazing sounds coming from a guitar made of such simple materials, he felt a connection to the instrument, one that has never left him. A great sounding guitar with the looks to match should not cost a fortune, and beautiful music can be created from instruments constructed of the simplest materials. The industry is controlled by a few large companies that have kept prices artificially high, reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options. By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through our website, Bohemian Guitars is able to provide higher-quality, stylish and trendy guitars at a much more affordable price.
