Gittler’s all-titanium guitar has no neck or body, demands more than the intro to ‘Stairway’ (video)

“An out of this world guitar playing experience.” That’s what Gittler promises from its aircraft-grade titanium axem and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production. Based on Alan Gittler’s original 1978 design, which is now housed at MoMA , it maintains the same simplified structure, coming from the mantra to strip away “all that is unnecessary and redundant.” That’s resulted in a guitar body that lacks both a neck and body — although an acrylic guitar neck can be added, if needed. Guitar enthusiasts that pitch $2, 000 into the Kickstarter coffer will land one of 250 “classic model” Gittlers, although they’ll have to follow that up with another $1, 995 payment to receive the instrument. There’s no volume controls, although the makers have managed to squeeze on knobs for both bass and treble. The funding goal stands at $80, 000, although it’s hard to put a price on good shredding.
