All beginnings are difficult. Learning to play a musical instrument requires joy over playing as well as persistence. In order to maintain the pleasure of making music it is of great importance, especially in lower price levels, to grant a comfortable playability.
In the GEWA Pure range we offer guitars and starter kits with lots of accessories for beginners. Of course, we have put all our experience from higher priced instruments in this series. That is why GEWA Pure makes the entry into the world of music as easy and affordable as possible for tomorrow's musicians.
The VGS Root Series combines the construction of an American acoustic guitar and the tradition of European guitar making. The development team, consisting of guitar makers, musicians and designers, is based in the so-called „Musikwinkel“ („musical corner“) in the Saxon Vogtland – the centre of traditional European instrument making. The father of the modern acoustic guitar, C.F. Martin, also lived in this area before he went to the New World and laid the foundation for the instrument that we know today. This fact as well as the extensive know-how in developing musical instruments has inspired us at VGS to produce high-grade acoustic guitars in Europe. The solid tonewood tops from European spruce are naturally dried for years and hand-selected.
Excellent sounding guitars made from local timber, using innovative new materials thus abandoning the use of endangered exotic woods – all this is VGS Polaris. The series is completely designed and manufactured in Europe. Only woods grown in the northern hemisphere such as spruce, maple and walnut are used. Thus, the Polaris series is not subject to the Washington Convention (CITES). The fingerboard and VGS Avalanche 2.0 bridge are made from Flaxwood, an ecological alternative to endangered wood species. This all new material resonates with equal force in all directions and gives an even dynamic response through a guitar's entire range. It is completely unaffected by changes in humidity and alternating climatic conditions.
