Vultura is a labour intensive guitar. It’s completely handmade. One at a time. I could make 4 basses in the time it takes to build 1 Vultura. This is a special guitar, for those that love attention to detail. It’s a guitar for those that are looking for a very personal voice to their guitar sound. Just like your own voice is unique, and your playing style. It’s for those who appreciate the airy captivating sound of a light built hollow body. And of course, it is for those who have the money to spend, because it is not affordable for everyone. It is in the 6500 to 9000 euro range, depending on the goals and specs of each individual instrument.
These days people are waking up from the consumerism that defines western society. All the throw away stuff, the plastic, stuff that is designed to last only so long (or short), the cheap labour stuff, the injustice stuff, the exploitation of the poor stuff. The western problem is so enormous, no single person can solve it.
With Vultura I go against this tide of consumerism. Instead of a mass produced cheap no-identity guitar, this is a handmade unique guitar, full of personal identity. It is handmade by a craftsman that has honed his skills for over 25 years. It’s an honest guitar, that took vision, skill and experience to come to be. There is a lot of passion involved in making it. And a LOT of hours. It’s therefore something of real value, as opposed to a mass produced cheapy that is marketed into a high price range.
