Gittler Guitar – Minimalism to the Max

Gittler-MIDI-OutGittler Instruments introduced the newly designed Gittler Guitar this year at the NAMM convention.

The Gittler is particularly interesting due to the hex pickups and a 13-pin output for connection to Roland guitar synth systems. The lack of a fretboard does make it look a bit challenging to play, but fear not. As the site explains:

You will only notice the lack of a fretboard in relation to the new freedom you have discovered by bending the strings downward as well as sideways, thus improving the tactile command of your pitch.

If you would like to put down a $1,000 deposit for one of the first 100 models, here is a link where you can do that very thing. Special thanks to Synthtopia for pointing out this unique instrument.
