In the 1970’s, musician and pioneer Allan Gittler came up with a guitar like none had ever seen. With only 60 models released in the 1980’s, the guitar has become a legend of sorts in the forward thinking guitar and design world.
He aimed to dispel common misconceptions embraced by guitar players. Methodically stripping away all he considered unnecessary and redundant, Gittler pared the instrument down to its most essential elements.
Featured in the New York Museum of Modern Art and Boston Fine Arts Museum, the instrument consists of 31 frets, in a striking minimalist design incorporating rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features.
The new, improved Gittler guitar is made of aircraft grade Titanium and boasts features that were either unavailable or unrealized up until now, including:
Abrasion resistant Titanium construction
Active electronics and tone shaping controls
LED fret marker lighting
Hexaphonic output capability
Patented locking string mechanism
Locking strap anchor points and adjustable bout
Interchangeable acrylic neck profiles
Deluxe version with black chrome DLC™ coating
