Minimalist Design & Titanium Electric Guitar

That's right.  You read that correctly.  Check it:

minimal electric guitar

Gittler Instruments was at NAMM 2016 showing off their minimally designed, fully titanium electric guitar, pictured above.

Their line-up of guitars, electric bass, upright bass, and violin are all described as:

A striking minimalist design with rounded cylindrical and ergonomic features, the Gittler Guitar is manufactured entirely of 6AL-4V aircraft grade Titanium.

The electric guitar weighs in at 3 lbs with 31  rounded frets.  The frets are perfect cylinders, creating the smallest point of contact possible (a tangent line across a circle's circumference... oh high-school Geometry, how I remember thee).  Mr. Allan Gittler himself holds a patent for these special headless guitar tuners.  You need those because the guitar is headless, you know what I'm saying?

Beyond having the industries best and most accurate MIDI tracking and the world's first and only pickup with 6 discrete transducers, but it has LED fret lighting.  I mean, c'mon, bro.  There may come a day when it's recognized as the best electric guitar ever, but it may need to change its look first.

If you weren't already thinking about extraterrestrial technology, you might still not be, but the LEDs sealed the deal for me.

You see those two bars coming off of the back to form the body of the guitar?  It's more than just that, you also use it to shift the balance of the weight exactly where you like it.

I just noticed there isn't even a fret board, only because the guy in this video just said it before he started demoing it:

You can pop on over to the Gittler Instruments homepage, if you scroll down to the bottom, and see more videos of a ton of pro's wailing on the guitar and bass at NAMM.

You should just to check out more pictures of this thing.  I'm trying to decide if it looks more like it came out of Alien or Terminator.  It's definitely one of the weirdest types of electric guitars I've seen.
