„Serpens“

The first guitar I designed and manufactured all by myself is the Serpens (which – as you are all well aware – is Latin for snake), the eponymous Guitarra Verde so to say – and ain’t she a beauty? The snake is the oldest known symbol for creation and infinity and green is the colour of life and growth. This particular green snake is just waiting for a faithful player to unleash its powers!

„Purple Haze“

Jimi would be proud! With the Purple Haze, I wanted to pay tribute to one of the greatest and most influential instrumentalists in the history of rock. The Purple Haze has everything a true rock ’n’ roller needs: a body made from durable American red alder, an ABM Berlin 5050 tremolo and carefully chosen design details such as a Jimi Hendrix portrait by artist John Van Hamersveld and engraved “Purple Haze” lyrics taken from a lyrics sheet handwritten by Jimi.

„El Mariachi“

Inspired by the gritty outlaw aesthetics depicted in the works of director Robert Rodriguez, the El Mariachi’s design owes a lot to Mexican culture – especially the famous Día de Muertos. Prominent usage of typical design elements such as calavera skulls and a custom-made strap featuring a Mexican Peso Coin create that badass Desperado look and make for a truly unique guitar with attitude.

„Yuri Gagarin“

Dedicated to the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin, a true pioneer in the history of mankind. Relive the space race – Soviet style: The Gagarin guitar combines the sleek, retro-futuristic design of the flying V with the utalitarian, stainless steel look of 60s era spacecraft. Its shoulder strap is handmade using genuine space age materials (the fabric they used to build spacesuits, to be precise) provided by the same company that supplied the Soviet space agency and is further inspired by Soviet air force uniform parts. The whole design features countless little details that hark back to an era when men where men and guitars were as loud as a rocket during launch.

The strap is built from original spacesuit fabric as used by the famous russian company „Zevzda NPP“. Zvezda NPP is the original company which built the suits for Yuri Gagarin and all the other cosmonauts and were kind enough to support me with the supply of this special fabric.

„Amy“

Amy was created to honour the voice and music of one the greatest female singers of our time who died under tragic circumstances in 2011. While her life and career were cut short, her music, style and influence will never be forgotten.
