Our Story

We make and sell the revolutionary "Ascender" folding travel guitar. The Ascender has a patented folding system with a hinge in the neck so the guitar can be folded in half for convenient transportation and storage. During air travel, for example, the Ascender fits under seat - the first guitar ever with that distinction. To play again, simply unfold the neck, flip a lever to lock the hinge and the re-tighten the strings, "top off tune" the strings, and you're ready to rock!
Our Ambition

Globally recognized guitar brand synonymous for quality and innovation and $10M+ in revenue based on a multi-instrument portfolio, including folding electric, acoustic and bass guitars. Based on our traction by years 3-5, we hope our disruptive guitar line will be an attractive acquisition target for major players in the guitar industry. Due to our robust international patent protection, any acquisition will command a healthy multiple for an attractive exit. These projections are not guaranteed.
