At this point in history, it seems that all simple things have already been invented. It’s like originality was impossible to achieve without introducing complexity.
With this guitar, however, Leo chose to defy that belief. The subtlest of lines (only seven of them) define a body shape that’s both simple and novel, a sweet spot in art and design from which new classics are born.
Most of Leo’s instruments follow the inspiration from specific, historical styles. This one, however, is difficult to place in a particular space or time. Is it retro, or is it futuristic? The artist chose to leave the decision to us.
