Tao Guitars - Based in Brussels. Amazing custom design and build work. Clockwise from top: TAO El Mirage, TAO T-Bucket, TAO Disco Volante and TAO Phaeton.
Mission statement from their homepage: ”The machine is not master & tyrant, but willing server and helper, and the products to not take their physiognomy from mechanical technology but from the spirit of their artistic originator and from the dexterity of artistically skilled hands. It is better to work ten days on an article than producing ten articles a day, this is the ruling principal. Style as identity.” Joseph August Lux
4 string Dingwall ABZ
