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.
You was a lucky man.... anyway some scan of the book you have will be much appreciated and published in this site mentioning your name , of course.... so please if you want send them, you can help this site to be at an high level. thanks

I know you had posted the booklet that I scanned. It's no longer there, not that it's a problem... but I am curious if you were asked to take it down? Since the Gittler Guitar is back in production perhaps they are being more careful because of copyrights etc. Either way it's too bad... I really just wanted to share with others how Avraham explained in his own words & drawings how the Bar Rashi Guitar came to be. I hope it didn't cause any friction for you.

Hi Glenn, I had no problem with copyrights and I didn't remove that booklet... And also I can say you that I'm in full contact and collaboration with Mr. Rubman the Ceo of the new Gittler company and with Yonatan Bar Rashi the son of Avraham... so If you want to share your experience ... is welcome !! Let me know Bye.
