Ansir Music Announces the Release of ANSIR Technology Guitars and Basses

Ansir Music''s instruments offer customization that allows for the angle of the neck to fit perfectly with your playing angle.


Cleveland, OH (December 15, 2009) -- Ansir Music Announces the release of its ANSIR (Angled Neck Stringed Instrument Resource) technology guitars and basses. Stringed instruments like the guitar are designed on the horizontal, so the player has to manipulate the instrument into a comfortable position by lifting up the neck or taking it out of its designed position to play it. Ansir's patented technology brings custom instruments to a new level with a patented design improvement that keeps the body of the instrument horizontal, while the neck is manufactured into the body at a predetermined angle using a measuring system to calculate your desired playing angle for your own truly customized guitar or bass.

All Ansir's instruments use high-quality hardware are hand carved from the finest exotic woods available--padouk, wenge, purple heart, pau ferro, koa, ebony, zebrawood and curly maple, just to name a few. These woods are combined with Ansir's “Low Bryd” passive electronics to produce some of the most sought-after and incredible tones available, for a truly enjoyable and uniquely customized playing experience. Ansir Music is now offering a constantly increasing line of instruments. You choose the ANSIR angle, the type of exotic tonewoods, contours and body carvings, the type of ANSIR electronics and hardware, and a custom case. Base price is $2500 before options, with the average price at around $3600.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
