Gittler: The First Truly Modern Guitar

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.

  1. Gorgeous piece, challenging price. I believe the guitar world has come far enough to support the Gittler, but I’m not sure our collective checkbooks are up to it. Less is more, for more it seems.

    To be clear, I’m not implying it’s not worth it. It’s beautiful in design and execution. But most of us will have to take a pass… again.
