Questrel SWOOD Premium and Standard Guitars
The Questrel Swood guitar from Glide Garage is made using local Japanese wood and traditional woodworking techniques of the Rikuzentakata area in northeastern Japan. The body is made of Japanese alder; the neck is Japanese maple; and the fingerboard is rosewood or Japanese maple, with the parts fitted together using the same techniques that enable Japanese temples and shrines to be constructed without nails or glue.
Another key innovation is a metal frame fitted in the center of the guitar's body, adding sharpness and power to the sound. The guitar was designed by Ken Okuyama, who also designed the Enzo Ferrari, built in 2002 using F1 technology.
