Platinum Limited Collection

Swiss Alp Descent Pear Platinum

As the last snow melts in spring, floating down the alpine rivers, Swiss alp farmer familys embark on their journey to their summer homes in the alps. Gathering their cattle and necessities, the farmers follow a century-old tradition and spend their summers in a alpine cottage. When the leafs start to fall, they dress up in their folk costumes and make their way back down to the valley, where they are greeted with a big parade by the villagers. With our Swiss Alp Descent Heritage Collection we pay tribute to this annual spectacle.

This one-off guitar from our 2020 Platinum Limited Collection features a elaborately hand-crafted design with a Swiss pear veneer top and a custom alp descent motive by artist Andreas Kiener engraved on the top. A subtle pear inlay marks the 12th fret. Paying close attention to the drawing, you'll not only find pear trees, but a range of hidden details.


The Alp Descent Pear Platinum offers all the features that allow the guitar to blend in seamlessly into any musical genre: The guitar shares the same construction as the Mary models: The piano-style construction with two magnetic high pressure veneers on either side of her aluminum core creates a brilliant crystal clear sound that vibrates freely from the bolted on bent neck to the piezo loaded saddles in the bridge. The ghost piezo by Graph Tech, built into the saddles adds warmth and enhances the guitar’s natural acoustic sound, widening the already extensive pickup functionalities provided by the sleek touch pad: two-finger coil-splitting and 17 pickup positions allow for in-depth tone precision. The magnetic back lid gives access to the guitar's tidy interior and makes way for lightspeed pickup swapping.
