    Does anyone happen to have a picture of the Gittler bass? IIRC, only 3 were made, so this may be to no avail. They were made in the earlier days of the Gittlers, in NYC, not Israel, so they don't have bodies on them. Here are the guitars made in NYC and Israel:

    I am honored to be a son of the late Avraham Bar Rashi, formerly Allan Gittler, an incredible man and musician who invented the Gittler Guitar and Gittler Bass.

    Photos of both, and more, are online at wwwbarrashi.com

    Three Gittler Basses exist. We are hoping to produce more soon.

    Great! Thanks so much...I had completely forgotten about this thread!
     
  6. I actually played a gittler guitar once. It had amazing metal sound. it was made of metal rods finely machined into wahat almost looked like a fish sceleton. The guy who had it was from Germany he had a kind of experimental industrial band called Der Zer Klang. I'll never forget, thanks for the memories.

  11. I know it's not exactly on topic, but I was fortunate to meet Mr Gittler long a go when he was in town for a NAMM show and he stated that he was upset with Andy Summers because he "bought the thing and put it in a glass case!"

    Has anyone heard more about possibilities of production on these guitars and basses? All the info on the net is from years ago.
