“The purpose of art is not the release of a momentary ejection of adrenaline but rather the gradual, lifelong construction of a state of wonder and serenity.”

Glenn Gould

The Ecstatic Guitar Theorem


This guitar was completely designed by Nicole Alosinac. I originally sent Nicole a song to listen too and she created a guitar with that song as a muse. This guitar was crafted in Nicole Alosinac’ shop in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Notion of Design

This guitar was originally conceived from a Bach musical performance entitled Aria Da Capo as performed by Glenn Gould.


An exquisite, tender and productive guitar. Clean refined lines, perfect brass inlay around the body, high quality figured woods and carnal curves make this a very special instrument capable of being the ultimate muse as well as musical partner for life. A profound instrument with a lot to offer every player.
