The Ecstatic Guitar Theorem

Sincerity

The vision was to craft the most intimate and comfortable instrument possible that married both Zach’s first decade of luthiery experience with honest premium materials.

 

An exquisite guitar with a profound lively voice. Very clean refined lines, high quality woods and carnal curves make this a very special instrument capable of being the ultimate muse as well as musical partner. The craftsmanship level displayed on this guitar is easily comparable to any master luthiers work. A fantastical instrument from an extraordinary luthier.
