A striking minimalist design with rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features!
The Gittler Guitar is manufactured entirely of 6AL-4V aircraft grade Titanium.
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.
Patented Tuning Machines
The headless guitar tuners were developed in New York by Allan Gittler in the early 1970’s. It was Patent Pending until 1978 at which time it received US Patent #4079652, preceding Steinberger’s re-imagining of the design by 2 years. It’s description of the preferred embodiment is very clear and simplistic.
Headless Guitar Design
Our newly improved headstock “string lock” mechanism provides an isolated vice grip on each string individually and prevents your pitch from wandering. Like the rest of the instrument, it is a minimalistic design that makes string changes simple and fast. Because the string is not wound around a post, the chance for core and winding fatigue at such points is eliminated.
The guitar benefits from active electronics and both standard 1/4″ and Hexaphonic outputs. The small E-Box at the back of the instrument has a volume wheel. The guitar is designed to work with most 13 pin guitar synthesizers and can connect to your computer for use with musical notation programs or processing software. There is no need for an externally mounted synth pickup since each of our magnetically isolated transducers sends an individual signal that provides for optimal tracking.
