The slightly different guitar

Regardless if you are standing or sitting: Our electric guitar can be played in a relaxed, ambitious and also enduring manner. This is the first electric guitar designed for playing in a seated position, especially for wheelchair users. The ease of play allows you to focus on the most important thing – your music.

OUR SPECIALTIES

A design that, when playing electric guitar while sitting in a wheelchair, especially due to the TSD-typical lower waist, allows for technically correct, individually excellent playing positions despite the ergonomic constraints of the wheelchair.  

 

einzigartiges-design-tsd-guitar

The unique neck position completely frees the guitarist's playing hand from the annoying constraints of having to hold the instrument in playing position.

 

Einzigartige-Halsposition-tsd-guitar

The scratch-resistant, durable and easy-care Satain optics, offers effective protection against, when handling a guitar in the wheelchair sitting in the long run hardly avoidable, scratches, abrasions or even small quirks.

 

Scratch-Paintwork-tsd-guitar

The truss rod access is located on the fingerboard between the 21st and 22nd frets near the central area of the guitar, so it is very easy to access. Adjustments can be made quickly and easily without a special tool.


Halsstabzugang-tsd-guitar

The "Top Locking" tuners simplify the handling when changing strings. Also, as is often necessary, quick string changes can be performed easily and safely.
