Beast of the East
Michael Schillhof

What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. Following your beast is the ultimate shortcut to freedom and expression of your inner will. With this premise, the Beast of the East was called to life as a division of Schloff Guitars & Basses. The aim was to combine aggressive shapes with all the knowledge that Michael Schillhof accumulated in years of repairing and building guitars with Schloff Guitars & Basses as well as his experience as Warwick’s foreman of the preproduction and custom shop head.

There was no space left in my showroom, so I decided to rent a table at the Holy Grail Guitar Show to store some instruments. Plus, I haven’t had an original Berlin doner kebab since God knows when.
