The closer we get to the NAMM show in Anaheim, California, the more my email inbox fills with press releases of the latest gear. This release caught my eye because they picked such an awesome name (and yes, that alone will sell guitars!!) But as I read the press release, I realize this company has more than a great name, they are out to build an awesome product. I will be sure to check them out in person when I travel to the NAMM show in January!
PRESS RELEASE – 09 December 2012
TITANIC GUITARS LAUNCH WORLDWIDE AT NAMM SHOW
LIMITED EDITION CENTENARY MODELS
100 years after the launch of the Titanic, a Belfast company has designed a range of limited edition guitars to celebrate this milestone. Welcome to the launch of Titanic Guitars (1912-2012).
Steeped in history, Belfast represents the home of the Titanic and town where some of the best shipbuilders and craftsmen spent hours of blood, sweat and tears to create a true masterpiece.
Now, a small group of luthiers in Ireland have used the same tradition and skills to develop a unique line of guitars that proudly pay homage to the Titanic. Using some of the best woods in the industry, combined with excellent tonal qualities, these new masterpieces are truly a collector’s item.
Featuring 8 custom models (4 acoustic and 4 electric), each model is limited to 100 pieces. Every guitar features select solid wood, a custom made hard-shell case, a limited edition engraved G7th capo, custom leather strap, D’Addario strings, plus a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The acoustic models are fitted with the Fishman Matrix VT system.
Each model is named after Titanic history, including the Belfast Goliath, Jack of Hearts, New York Dreadnought, to name a few. Excellence in craftsmanship and design is something we’re proud of in Ireland.
Titanic Guitars represent just that. The very best in guitar design, has been combined with our skills in manufacturing abroad, to bring affordable, yet excellent Titanic collectables, as well as excellent guitars, meant to be inspirational and bring years of enjoyment. Prices start from $800.00 to $2150.00. Visit www.TitanicGuitars.com for more information. (Note: the website does not go active until December 18th!)
