Spirit of the Wind
Spirit of the Wind guitar was designed and created as a celebration of craftsmanship.
We aim to create heirloom quality instruments. Something that will leave it’s mark across generations.
We’ve examined, restored, and played a wide array of instruments, sometimes outside the guitar realm, covering well over a century of workmanship; from antebellum gut strings through grail acoustics such as Larsons, pre-war Martins, 40’ Gibsons, and of course classic 50’s electrics.
The inspiration for this instrument came from varied sources. You will be able to find echoes of early automotive classics from the time of epic journeys and innovative designs, or even the legend of an invincible Japanese Samurai who won his first battle with an old oar that he turned into a wooden sword.
The first thing that will strike you when picking up Spirit of the Wind for the first time is just how light it is.
At 2.5 kg it is probably one of the lightest electric guitars you’ll find.
The combination of lightweight Port Orford cedar neck and hollow pine body gives an unbelievably responsive feel, woven with complex overtones that make for its warm and rich signature sound.
We’ve already encountered players who used an unplugged Spirit of the Wind guitar as an acoustic instrument.
The core idea behind the making of this guitar was to create an instrument that will ring true and will reflect the pure and minuet nuances of each and every note you play, and first and foremost will give you the most sought after ingredient of any guitar player-inspiration.
To put our philosophy to the test, our benchmark is “The cable Test”:
The guitar has got to sound amazing with just one cable between the guitar and the amp with it’s pure tone. No effects. No filters. No enhancements.
Our mission is to bring you an instrument that will be your lifelong companion on your journey.
May the god of feedback be with you!
