CROSSROADS OF PASSION AND EXPERIENCE
The Badlands Guitar Company is the brainchild of The Tone King and Luka Skalabrin, two friends and hard rock guitar fanatics with a passion for the sights, sounds, and gear of '80s hard rock. They formed Badlands Guitar Company to disrupt the reissue guitar market, which they believe takes too many shortcuts when it comes to delivering a true '80s hard rock guitar experience.
A SALUTE TO THE
Building from their knowledge of the designs, features, and specifications that elevate the typical electric guitar into versatile, responsive, rowdy-but-sometimes-refined instrument that '80s hard rock music demands, TTK and Luka devised the limited-run, U.S.-made GX1, both as a tribute to the heady days of the Sunset Strip scene and the players who demand the best in quality and value.
