At the 2013 NAMM Show, Gittler Instruments launched its newly designed Gittler Guitar, invented in the 1970’s by musician and minimalist design pioneer Allan
Gittler methodically stripped away all that was unnecessary and redundant in his design. The instrument, consisting of 31 frets, is a striking minimalist design. And Gittler says the guitar offers “the best available synth tracking on the market today”.
- Abrasion resistant Titanium construction
- Active electronics and tone shaping controls
- LED fret marker lighting
