For over 38 years Nobuaki Hayashi has
been involved in the engineering and production of some of the more innovative
and progressive guitar designs to come out of Japan. Most of the Aria Pro
II guitar lovers will recognize his old craft name H. Noble on the Aria
Pro II headstocks which he used while he was part of the design and engineering
team at Matsumoku. It would be hard to deny his contributions to the innovations
and standards that set Matsumoku's guitars apart from and above their competition!
Mr. Hayashi has continued to push the limits
of electric guitar design since the sale of Matsumoku to Singer in the
late 1980s and is President of Atlansia guitars and a NAMM member. It is
quite evident his creativity has not waned since his involvement with Matsumoku.
The giutars offered by Atlansia are not only instruments, but have evolved
into the next generation of electric guitars and basses, as well as works
of art. Although the pages are for the most part in Japanese, I invite
you to visit Atlansia's website.
I think you will be impressed with some of the ideas they have incorporated
into the Atlansia guitars!
Pictured below are just three of the
guitars offered by Atlansia .
