If you enjoy playing the guitar you might enjoy playing the world’s first fully titanium Gittler Guitar which offers a super minimal design that breaks the mould when compared it traditional guitar designs.
The fully titanium Gittler Guitar has been designed and created by Russell Rubman and takes inspiration from Alan Gittler, who created minimal guitar designs back in the 1970s. For an overview of the new fully titanium Gittler Guitar check out the videos after the jump to see it in action.
Rubman has now launched his new titanium guitar design on the Kickstarter crowd funding website to help him fund the guitars first production run and cover development costs. The new guitar builds on the the original Gittler Guitar invented by Allan Gittler and which received U.S. patent 4079652 for its minimal design and stripped back form.
“The Gittler Guitar is a striking minimalist design incorporating rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features. The guitar is manufactured entirely of 6AL-4V aircraft grade Titanium. MIDI guitar players love our guitar since it is 100% Roland compatible.
Rounded Frets, 31 of them in fact! The frets, like the majority of the instrument, are cylindrical. Here we have another classic example of form following function. A cylinder provides the smallest possible contact area for the string. Precisely defined fret spacing is the cornerstone of perfect intonation.”
The Gittler Guitar project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
