Zerberus Guitars / Triton / 2013 / Brownburst / Guitar
Today I have a very special offer for you.
In 2009 I planned to launch a new series of guitars named "TRITON".
But I had to reconsider and so that series never was built.
The only Triton guitars that were built were two prototypes and one of them was shown and sold right at the Musikmesse exhibition in Frankfurt Germany.
I kept the other prototype in my workshop for all of those years and during that time I built some Triton guitars as handcrafted custom projects.
Now I finally found some time to overwork the electronics and equip that Triton.
And now finally I am proud to offer that amazing guitar for sale.
I disassembled the piezo-preamp and installed a 2-band active control instead giving the option to adjust the character of the piezo sound by two trim-potentiometers on the back of the guitar. (the Triton has a piezo-bridge).
That active control has a lot of power and the tonal versatility of that Triton is unbelievable.
Generally that Triton has an amazing humbucker sound, but the possibility to add a piezo signal makes this guitar a real sound-wonder.
Moreover, I have installed two output jacks so you can play that instrument thru 2 amps.
Of course you can mix the humbucker sounds and the piezo sound when playing thru one amp, but as soon as you plug in a guitar cable to the upper output jack, the piezo signal will be switched to the upper jack.
Now imagine: You - playing the humbuckers thru a distorted amp and the piezo thru a nice clean amp. That really makes some kind of 3-D sound.
I have made a small sample video to show one aspect of the amazing humbucker sound of the Triton guitar:

Zerberus Guitars, Germany
All custom guitars are completely made by only one luthier - ME.
Zerberus-Guitars is some kind of a One-Man-Show and it´s only me in the workshop.
I do all the works - drive arround to find amazing long time stored lumber - saw out the bodies and necks -shape that all by hand without using CNC machines - equipp the hardware - install the electronis - paint the guitars and so on......I also take the photos and make the website.
No step of my work is done by someone else.
That makes the guitars very unique.
Building such a handmade unique specimen takes at least 6 months.
For making my custom guitars, I don´t use computer controled CNC-machines.
I do all the routings and carvings by hand and so I am not restricted to any standard designs.
I come from a very musical family.
My grandfather played trumpet in a band and my father is a professional rock´n roll guitarist in my region.
On the other hand my ancestors have been very skilled craftsmen who worked as makers of wood cartweels (Grand-grandfather) and wood barrels (Grandfather).
My father does not have a hand for woodworking :)
But he is a lifetime Rock guitarist.
So in my person the two rows come together being a rock guitarist that also loves woodworking :)
I have inherited some woodworking tools from my grand-grandfather that I still use when building my handcrafted custom guitars.
When I was 14, I have built my first guitar with the help of an old luthier.
Later in 1992 I had my own design company and I specialised in guitar design (have played in several bands this time).
Later in 2002 I founded my very own guitar company Zerberus-Guitars and fullfiled one of my biggest childhood dreams with that.
Is it your dream to own an instrument that is the only one of its kind on the planet, as individual as you - the owner, an instrument that is lovingly handcrafted, using selected timbers and the finest hardware, to satisfy your very own aesthetics, needs and personal preferences?
In my Custom Shop, I specialize in carefully hand-building the kinds of guitars and basses that reflect the DNA of their players. I do not employ CNC-machines which mechanically churn out half-finished guitar bodies every few minutes. By contrast, all carving, assembly and finishing is performed by one skilled craftsman, so that my guitars can not be clones of any models made previously.
Each instrument leaving my Custom Shop is a unique specimen. And not being restricted to proprietary designs, I am able to develop very individual guitars and basses in response to the originality and inspiration of our clients.
