It is a pleasure to find and visit the master Gittler's web site he was an amazing visionary. I was recalling meeting him the other day many years ago when he began it was an amazing experience being present for one of his few public performances. I could not recall his name as we were not introduced but one of our colleagues helped me remember his name so I am honored to recall his remembrance. May he be remembered in the world to come.

#23 here. Original owner - September 1978. Ordered mine from Mr. Gittler after reading the article The Gittler Guitar - Electric Design By Function By Tom Mulhern pages 36,68,72 of the August 1978 issue (Volume 12 Number 8) of Guitar Player magazine (John McLaughlin was pictured on the cover).

I spoke with Avraham Bar Rashi by telephone back in the early 90's.At that time he went back to making guitars out of wood but maintained a minimalist approach. I'm really sorry I never ordered one of his instruments. But at the time I had returned to school and couldn't afford one. But the "Bar Rashi" guitars were not expensive...around $200 Canadian at the time.I've still got the little hand written booklet with drawings explaining the details of the instrument.

I used to hang out with Gittler in Jerusalem; what beautiful sounds he could get out of that guitar! After a disastrous attempt to mass produce them, he started handmaking minimalistic wooden guitars, a different kind of beauty, but with the same flare
