Warrior Guitars / Poseidon / 2008 / Guitar For Sale
The Warrior “ Poseidon” guitar apart from being extremely resonant with a superb tone and playability, aesthetically was designed and decorated as a true art piece.
It was made of the rarest and extremely valuable tonewoods in the world.
In addition to this, the assembly with its unique features and the natural oil finishing represent the “cream of the cream” of today's luthiery standards.
Please see the picture with the specifications for more details.
Upon request, we can present you the whole Pdf file with the making of the guitar and its presentation in International exhibitions.
Only four guitars have been made: “Zeus”, “Poseidon”, “Aphrodite” and “Artemis”. These are some of the most valuable Guitars / Art pieces ever made in the world.
Each one has its own strong ID – related to the sound, the shape and the artwork- associated with the particular God/Goddess.
The project started during Spring 2008 and finished at the end of 2015.
The process was very laborious and accurate since apart from the hardware all the rest was 100% handmade.
“THE OLYMPIANS COLLECTION”
JDRAN / TAKIS Design
This collection is made to honor each ancient Greek Olympian God with a unique guitar.
This musical instrument was invented by them and they offered it to humanity. According to mythology, Apollo was the inventor of the guitar.
The original Greek name was Kithara, from which the Latin cithara was derived and then, in turn, all the modern names, guitar, guitare, gitarre, guitarra, qitara.
In the time of Homer ( 9th century B.C. ), the phorminx was one of the oldest of the Ancient Greek stringed musical instruments, intermediate between the Lyre ( Lyra ) and the guitar
( kithara ). In the 6th century B.C. it was replaced by the lyre family of stringed instruments, where the guitar was classified as the most professional member of that family.
The Warrior Poseidon guitar is dedicated to God and reflects his personality and character. Poseidon was the God of the sea, and, as "Earth-Shaker," of earthquakes. The carved statue – a replica of the famous original - and his symbols were crafted on the top wood and then stained in a unique manner to couple the elegant Signature design of the guitar. The result is a fine work of Art.
The sound of the Poseidon guitar represents God himself. It has a male dominance tone that is like still water and suddenly it becomes a storm. Clarity, sustain, accurate definition of every note and attack are just a few words to describe the grandeur of this instrument.
To achieve this we used some of the finest and rarest components available in the world. Every piece of wood is naturally air-dried for many years!
The body: The back is made of 300-year-old Honduras mahogany. The thick carved top is made from selected aged buckeye burl. The statue which is hand-carved on the wood is the replica of the famous ancient statue which is placed at the port of Copenhagen in Denmark. The blue-grey ocean-like background projects the image of the statue.
The neck: The neck is made of the same precious mahogany with Pernambuco tone bar. Pernambuco is the most expensive and rare wood in the world. This priceless wood possesses the highest velocity of sound. Its stiffness, durability, and the unique internal memory of its fibers make it the absolute Holy Grail of tonewoods.
Only the very expensive violin bows were made from this wood.
The fingerboard: Selected old-growth Brazilian Rosewood (accompanied with CITES certificate). 25” scale. Purfling of the ancient Greek Meandros design.
Finish: Unique multi - coat Warrior oil finish for natural feel and resonance.
The 24 Gold frets, the Warrior Angels pickups with the wooden inlaid covers, the G System stringing, recessed strap locks, wooden knobs, and the amazing inlay- purfling ( Mother of Pearl ) / carving work put the final touch.
Hardcase : Luxury Croco style Warrior hardcase, including a Warrior genuine padded leather strap, a Warrior T-shirt, and Certificate of Authenticity.
