Revved Guitars was started in 2009 by Jason Hallett in a Northern California garage. Hallet invented a wireless guitar that could be inductively charged while it sits on a stand. He was unable to find guitar companies interested in the idea so he started building the guitars himself.

Renaissance (acrylic)

Renaissance electric guitars and basses were made from clear acrylic (trade name Plexiglass or Lucite). Renaissance was founded in 1977 in  Malvern, Pennsylvania by John Marshall. Marshall had learned guitarmaking from Eric Schulte and Augie LoPrinzi,. He was joined by two other partners, Phil Goldberg and Dan Lamb. Production of the Renaissance SPG started in 1978 with clear, smokey grey or black acrylic bodies and all the instruments had DiMarzio pickups with active cictuitry. John Dragonetti joined the company in 1979, but by this time the business was in financial trouble. The instruments were not profitable and suffered from some design problems - Dragonetti set about redesigning the line. He dropped the active electronics, thinned down the bodies, introduced a BC Rich body style, and used standard components instead of making them in house.


Remus electric and acoustic guitars were made in Japan from the 1970s on, for distribution in Australia.
