Gittler Instruments, LLC announces its launch of the newly designed Gittler Guitar, invented in the 1970’s by musician and minimalist design pioneer Allan Gittler. With only 60 models released in the 1980’s, the guitar has become a legendary and iconic symbol of think-forward design.
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:
Electronics box (Ebox)
6 individual pickups of revolutionary design
Hexaphonic output capability
Patented locking string mechanism
Abrasion resistant Titanium construction
Active electronics and tone shaping circuit
LED fret marker lighting
Strap anchor points and adjustable bout
Optional LOXX™ strap lock system
The Gittler Guitar will be introduced to the market at NAMM 2013, the largest musical instrument trade show worldwide. To learn more about the Gittler Guitar, contact Gittler Instruments at 631-342-0685, or visit www.GittlerInstruments.com.
