You know you’ve accomplished something when your guitar designs end up in the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in, well, Boston. That’s the backstory of this Israeli-made Gittler Electric Guitar.
The kinda complex story of the Gittler is well documented by Wikipedia. You can read all about it here.
The basic premise of the design is to strip away the “sentimental design references” to acoustic guitars and simplify the electric guitar to its “most minimal functional form possible.” Yeah, boy.
The most famous Gittler moment came in the early 80s when Andy Summers of the Police played one in the Synchronicity II music video.
She’s light (5.5 lbs) and comes with her original Gittler padded gig bag.
This is a collector piece for sure. According to Wikipedia, about 300 of this particular guitar were made under license in Israel in the 80s. If you want to refine that—and I sure would—ask seller.
Seller doesn’t mention how she plays or sounds. I get why. The point is how she looks. But it would be nice to know.
41 folks are watching her. That’s a ton at this price level.
Go get her.
