INSPIRATION:
The guitar design based on both ergonomic body properties and shapes of vessels such as yachts or jets which smooth gliding on the waves or soaring high above evokes a feeling of absolute freedom just like our favorite music.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Lightweight and ergonomic, one can take it wherever one likes to practice or where one gets inspiration to compose some beautiful melodies. The body shape allows comfortably playing in a various range of positions, while standing, seating, even leaning back on a sofa. It's sonic delivery bases on a careful wood and pickup selection as well as structural features, providing long sustain and clear tones. This extended range guitar offers great playing experience in many different styles.

Use it with headphone amplifier or a powerful guitar stack, just the way you like to play music.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Though being a huge guitar enthusiast throughout the years I've never thought about designing one. This project demanded a deep research in various aspects of electric guitars in order to reach maximum comfortable playability, sound specifications, ergonomics and last but not least - manufacturability. From analyzing traditional shapes to studying contemporary trends in the guitar industry and spending countless hours to search for any kind of relevant information, the process took it's time. But due to the positive feedback from fellow musicians it was worth it.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was to achieve an accurate balance between attractive futuristic shape and functional characteristics of the musical instruments, and finally get it build precisely according the concept.
