Sublime Guitars was founded in 2012 by Chi-Yuan Huang, Tommy Platt, David Quinones and others. Sublime uses guitar makers from Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia and the US for different aspects of their guitar production. Their builders are often single person shops that specialize in a single area of production. Rather than having one large factory mass-produce an entire instrument, their guitar line sources each component based on quality and craftsmanship.
In 2014 used a successful Kickstarter campaign to help fund their first series of production pedals: Chunky Brogan Distortion, Mobin Overdrive, Pep-Pep Delay, and the Hippy Joel Overdrive
