Bohemian Guitars’ mission is to build funky, unique, and innovative sounding instruments out of unconventional materials for real, everyday use. Passionate about art, music and community outreach, Bohemian Guitars puts a creative spin on a timeless and classic instrument—the guitar—offering a refreshing and inspirational change of pace to the music and art scene.
The inspiration behind the oil can guitar comes from the resourceful residents from the townships in South Africa who re-purpose used materials into playable instruments. Through Bohemian Guitars, brothers, Adam and Shaun Lee, who spent their childhood growing up in Johannesburg, South Africa, are able to share a piece of their homeland and spread the joy created by the beautiful sounds of oil can guitars with musicians and artists all over the world.
