Meet Kanto.

You could be forgiven for thinking you’ve met before, but if you look closer, you’ll find a custom built guitar with a new attitude and a number of solutions to old problems.

You can’t be using the same old methods to make new music, so welcome Kanto into your guitar world and discover how things can be different.

The solid ash (standard) body is contoured on the top and back for comfort. The upper frets are easily reached thanks to the gentle contouring on the upper bout and a carved neck heel.

Scratch plate-loaded electrics, complete with Sunbear Pickups, are standard on the Kanto, making it possible to have multiple scratch plates with different options.

The stainless steel frets, with the rolled edge fingerboard, add up to a very comfortable playing experience.

Here are examples of Kanto to whet your appetite.
