Black 35 Guitars was founded in 2016 by Anthony Cartinella. At the time he founded Black 35, Cartinella already had nearly 2 decades experience of building custom musical instruments through his drum company Dark Horse Percussion. Black 35 has grown to be a successful hand crafted electric guitar company and has built over 800 guitars for players globally, including renowned artists such as Rich Fortus (Guns n Roses), Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance), Brian Baker (Bad Religion), Stephen Egerton (Descendents), Tracii Guns (LA Guns). In July 2022, Cartinella handed over ownership of Black 35 to Kyle Wolfe, of Moon Guitars. Wolfe is another NJ luthier who had helped with Black 35 builds over the years and was the logical choice to carry on the Black 35 business.
