Project Description


Conventional guitars have either 21 or 22 frets. However, in modern guitars, the standard is 24 frets, which provides a slightly wider tonal range. Few guitars have 27 frets—or maybe even 30, for some very particular custom builds.

This one has 64.

Created as an exercise in design that takes a stringed instrument to the extreme of its physical possibilities, this guitar defies expectations in the face of a million copies of Stratocasters and Les Pauls. A mix between a radio and a rocket, its unmistakable 1950s spirit is patent in the shapes, the choice of materials, and the color palette.
