AN AMERICAN HARD ROCK STORY
Bill Valaika started Glam Guitars back in 2009 with interest in giving back to Rock n’ Roll by creating one of a kind playable guitars by painstakingly placing over 5,000 Swarovski Crystals onto guitars by hand with such precision they are sought after by memorabilia art collectors. These guitars are played and adorned by some of the biggest names in Rock n Roll like Bret Michaels/Poison, Ronnie James Dio, Bootsy Collins/Parliament and James Brown, Disturbed, Axl Rose/Guns n Roses, Erik Turner/Warrant, and Malina Moye to name a few.
