Japanese guitar brand Ghostron are currently running a Kickstarter to fund their new model, the Traisia.
The design for the guitar was reached by studying and analysing the playing habits and posture of over 100 guitarists, landing on a futuristic looking but incredibly comfortable feeling guitar with ergonomics that ensure maximum playability at all times, whether you’re standing up or sitting to play.
The guitar features a 25.5 inch scale and weighs 7.7lbs. The body is white ash with a rosewood fretboard on a c-shape maple neck. The guitar features “Jazzmaster style” Porter pickups, wrap around bridge, Gotoh tuners and a 3 way switch with 500k pots and oil capacitors in the electronics.
Ghostron are offering a range of rewards for Trasia backers, from Ghostron shirts to discounted Trasias, and are even offering a discount if your purchase multiple guitars.
Hurry though, as the Kickstarter closes in 4 days at time of writing. With coverage from several major guitar publications, this is a Kickstarter that is sure to be a success.
Ghostron also provided this extended playthrough on their YouTube channel.
