The Ecstatic Guitar Theorem

Sincerity

This is a Treehouse Guitars original design. The concept was to design a quintessential Parlour utilizing some of Zach’s finest materials. This guitar began construction in the summer of 2016 in Zachary Lefebvre’s shop located in Hilton Beach, Ontario.

Notion of Design

The vision was to craft the most intimate and comfortable instrument possible out of two conventional guitar materials with exquisite figuring.

 

Creative detailing and refined lines come together to form an earthy guitar with a refined voice with heirloom expression. Aina is a very special instrument capable of being the ultimate muse as well as convenient travelling companion.
