I am old enough to remember Gittler’s first time around, about thirty-five years ago. It heralded the first truly radical shift in guitar design since the lute morphed into the instrument we know today. The world wasn’t ready at the time, though the Museum of Modern Art in New York recognized it as a gorgeous piece.
Here’s hoping the guitar world has come far enough to support this amazing instrument this time around. If you want to get in on the ground floor, join their kickstarter campaign.
