Product Description

Art that makes Art.

The Vitruvian Man is a well known drawing from Leonardo da Vinci circa 1490. A study of proportions relating to the average human male, this piece of artwork is a timeless classic that we are thrilled to put on one of our guitars!

This beautiful piece is one of our line of "illustrated" guitars, designed to capture the essence of fundamental, no-frills stringed instrument crafting. To the sturdy, no-frills frame (tone-rich wooden cigar box, hardwood neck & fretboard, solid tried-and-true hardware), we add a beautiful, full-color piece of artwork, uniquely vivifying the instrument and drawing the eye of all who see it. This handcrafted guitar has a full, rich acoustic tone (and a built-in contact pickup, if you want to amplify it), a nice high ringing treble voice, and is simply a joy to play. Best of all is the affordable price on this hand-crafted-in-the-USA piece of musical art.

The demo video below shows another guitar in this same line, built with the exact same methods but with a different decal - the sound is the same!

The soundboard artwork is printed in full color on special weatherproof polyester film, and is adhered to the box with a permanent, weather-proof adhesive. These are built from new, unbranded wooden cigar boxes, which have never held cigars and have no connection to the tobacco industry.
