Hottie Guitars was founded in 2005 by Jean-Claude Escudie in Portland, Oregon. Initially Escudie made guitar amps out of vintage toasters and other kitchen equipment. In 2007 he teamed up with master luthier Saul Koll to collaborate on a series of electric guitars. The first model was the Limited Edition Hottie 454 which was soon followed by the Hottie 327 and Hottie 429.
