The Merkaba is my most modern minded guitar. The original Merkaba design features extensive contouring both front and back to give a unique appearance and incredible comfort. The inspiration for the unique curves was in part inspired by super car design and the way the light hits those sleek contours.

The word Merkaba dates back many centuries and is derived from ancient Hebrew. It is composed of three syllables: "Mer," which means "light," "Ka," which means "spirit," and "Ba," which means "body." Together, "Merkaba" can be translated as "light-spirit-body"
In esoteric and spiritual traditions, the Merkaba refers to a mystical and energetic field that surrounds the human body. It is often depicted as a geometric shape, specifically a three-dimensional star tetrahedron or a rotating double tetrahedron. The Merkaba is believed to be a vehicle of spiritual ascension, transformation, and interdimensional travel.
The Merkaba is designed to take your playing to new places. The Merkaba neck carve is a slim profile with a 16" radius fingerboard. This allows for a low action with very fast playability and clean string bending. The nut width is slightly wider than the Shoreline, at 43mm it gives a little more space on the board often favoured by modern players. The single cutaway body shape with it's contouring and carved heel design allows access to the highest frets with ease.
A choice of options are available to tailor or customise the Merkaba to your needs. Please feel free to contact us to discuss pickup options, finish options and even custom inlay options.
