Allan Gittler was a musical visionary who aimed to dispel the common misconceptions which have been embraced by guitar players dating back to the 1930′s. He was able to banish all traditional notions of what a guitar “should” be, by methodically stripping away all that was unnecessary and redundant. By paring the instrument down to its most essential elements, the Gittler Guitar remains uniquely capable of exhibiting nuances that were previously unrealized by guitar players.
Featured in the New York Museum of Modern Art and Boston Fine Arts Museum, the instrument, consisting of 31 frets, is a striking minimalist design incorporating rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features. The newly improved Gittler guitar is made of aircraft grade Titanium and boasts a long list of exciting 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
• 6 individual pickups of revolutionary design
• Hexaphonic output capability
• Patented locking string mechanism
• Adjustable bridge
• Locking strap anchor points and adjustable bout
• Interchangeable acrylic neck profiles
• Deluxe version with black chrome DLCTM coating
The Gittler Guitar will be introduced to the market at NAMM 2013, the largest musical instrument trade show worldwide.
