Guitars

DSC08675We not only want Astha Guitars to be recognized as a social enterprise, but also as world class guitars for an affordable price.

Our intention is to build guitars with an Indian touch but with the world wide market in mind. Our focus will be on acoustic guitars with an outstanding sound and playability and also with a high attention to make them durable and well usable in all sorts of climates. Besides the regular two-way truss rod in the neck we are planning on another unique special feature; an easily adjustable neck connections for changing the neck angle in seconds (= string action).
This means you will be able travel anywhere in the world and adjust the string action to your liking. With all solid wood guitars this is a real issue as the wood always stays alive and shrinks and expands under humidity changes.

We are happy to show you the first prototype now according to Luke Brunner’s designs and concepts by based on his original body shapes (details are still subject to change). The instruments are supposed to have and very natural touch and feel and will be complemented with some fine indian art inlays. We also want to offer them mainly in local indian woods such as Indian Rosewood, Ebony and Indian Mahogany and we will only use certified woods.

The first prototype is entirely made of Swiss and Indian woods nicely reflecting our unique partnership!
