Now being used on an increasing variety of recorded and live music, Touch Guitars® are suitable for a wide range of musical styles. They are equally useful within rock, jazz, experimental forms and contemporary electro-acoustic classical music, plus any other genre which the player desires. They are also ideal for use as high-quality source instruments for electrophonic soundscaping, via pedals and processing.
As with all high-end tools and instruments, the details make all the difference. Constructed from hand-picked premium-grade woods, carefully-chosen precision parts and high-end custom electronic components, various Touch Guitar models have different specifications and features to suit each player. Some are solid-body electric instruments. Others are semi-acoustic. Some contain active electronic pickups, while some take a passive pickup option. Some offer different functional body shapes, or custom contouring to suit the body shape of the individual player. Some Touch Guitar models remain closer to the original design philosophy of producing a single self-contained full-range instrument; while other models are designed to make full use of separate stereophonic outputs, emphasizing separate “bass” and “guitar” counterpoint.
