The ‘modern version’ of something is always looked upon with skepticism. When you take a tangible thing and make it digital or electronic, some may doubt its validity. The move from an acoustic guitar to electric caused a big hubbub, but it started to be more widely accepted as time moved on. The next big step will be moving to a guitar that has no head, body, and has frets made from light.
While the Gittler Guitar may be minimalistic, it has all the necessary pieces and parts to let you play a lovely melody or shred to your heart’s desire. This has headless tuners that reside at the base of the strings, rounded frets that have LED indications, and a detachable neck made of acrylic. It comes with a mini tripod so you can have better access to the full 31-fret range. The classic model will cost $4,395, while the special edition will tack on another $500. This is pretty damage-resistant, so it’ll be a bit tougher to destroy it onstage if you like smashing your guitar at the end of a set.
