Ergonomics Meet Simplicity: The New Ghostron Traisia

As a guitar enthusiast, I’m always keeping an eye out to see what’s new.

Sometimes it’s a new AI-driven VST emulating a legendary amp, once it was that forgettable Gibson self-tuning Frankenstein.

But it shouldn’t always be about reinventing the wheel.

You see when things work, why overcomplicate them?

Yesterday I was curiously browsing Kickstarter to see if there were any up-and-coming guitar models or accessories and I stumbled upon Ghostron.

And what caught my eye was, on the line of what I mentioned, they are not pushing the envelope technologically or trying some new disruptive feature out.

Quite the opposite.

Their new Traisia model is a guitar that just works.

With stunning but simple looks, and rocking two Jazzmaster P90 pickups, their unique selling proposition is not industry shifting, but refreshing, and what many players are looking for:

A simple guitar with an ergonomic design and quality construction.

Who could do that better than a Japanese company?

The new Ghostron Traisia was designed taking into account the playing postures of over a hundred players, both sitting and standing up.

Everything from its contours, and their depth, to the placement of controls and how it balances when hanging from your back, has been intentionally and scientifically determined.

As their manufacturers say, the Traisia is a guitar made with everyone in mind.

Relying on the golden ratio, the actual shape of the instrument is unique and appealing, however, you can see how it hints at some of the most traditional guitar models of all time.

They understand that we guitar players are nostalgic creatures, and prefer instruments that look and feel, somehow, like home.

You can see this clearly in its specs sheet:

No rocket science, just age-proven, battle-tested guitar science.

With the Traisia you wouldn’t be able to get a thousand different tones, nor amaze your friends with stories about how your guitar is built with space-age materials.

What you see (and hear) is what you get, and that’s absolutely good enough for most of us.

Finally, if you are interested in knowing more about this instrument, and the company behind it, I encourage you to visit their Kickstarter campaign and even pledge towards their goal!
