Gittler Instruments announces its launch of the new Gittler Guitar, invented in the 1970s by musician and minimalist designer Allan Gittler.
60 models were released in the 1980s.
Allan Gittler's goal was to "dispel the common misconceptions which have been embraced by guitar players dating back to the 1930s." As such, he tried to banish the traditional notions of what a guitar “should” be, by methodically stripping away all that was unnecessary and redundant down to its most essential elements.
Featured in the New York Museum of Modern Art and Boston Fine Arts Museum, the instrument, consisting of 31 frets, is a minimalist design incorporating rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features. The new Gittler guitar is made of aircraft grade Titanium and boasts features including:
- Electronics box (Ebox)
- Six individual pickups
- Hexaphonic output capability
- Locking string mechanism
- Abrasion resistant Titanium construction
- Active electronics and tone shaping circuit
- LED fret marker lighting
- Adjustable bridge
- Strap anchor points and adjustable bout
- Optional LOXX strap lock system
- Deluxe version in gun-metal finish with Aerospace Teflon coating
The Gittler Guitar will be introduced to the market at NAMM 2013.
