GALLERY: Montreal Guitar Show 2011

Some of the innovative, beautiful, and groundbreaking instruments on display in Montreal.

Jean-Yves Alquier
"Always with the eye-catching designs, this latest guitar is a part of a triptych of guitars that pay tribute to important guitarists and composers. This year's guitar pays tribute to a baroque lute composer and is an electro-acoustic guitar designed to have a lute-like tone. The guitar features a floating ""top"" inside, deeply scalloped frets, and custom, adjustable bridge and saddles that can be easily raised and lowered, just by pushing or pulling them. Alquier said of the unique instrument, ""We've created the guitar, now we have to create the guitarist."""
