Remembered as a significant player in the guitar amplifier market during the 1960s and 1970s. Despite facing financial difficulties in the 1980s and being acquired by Gibson, Kustom amplifiers continued to be produced and the brand has experienced a resurgence in popularity in recent years among vintage guitar amplifier collectors and players. Kustom is now part of the Hanser Music Group. The brand is known for its distinctive look, with bright, unique Tolex covering and metal grills.
