PureSalem Guitars adopts an inspired approach and attitude while honoring the electric guitars’ glorious past. It‘s simplicity in design. It’s wood, wire, and strings. It’s rock and roll, and not rocket science.
Named after the Muddy Waters song of the same name from his influential 1968 Electric Mud album the PureSalem Tom Cat combines exceptional value, quality construction and components, with off-kilter stylings that transport us back to an era when Rock & Roll was free and memories yet to be made.
