France-based company Alquier Guitars is introducing a gorgeous new range of bamboo guitars that don't just produce beautiful tones, but also help reduce the reliance on other kinds of wood that are contributing to deforestation.
The Alquier Cosmic One, a limited-edition product that will only be owned by 100 lucky guitarists, makes use of bamboo that is certified to have been sourced from sustainable farms and foresting operations. The 22-fret instrument even features a bamboo-sheathed neck and bridge pickups, showcasing its complete and unabashed commitment to using sustainable bamboo whilst adhering to increasingly strict tonewood laws and regulations.
Currently the subject of a crowdfunding campaign over on Kickstarter, this elegant bamboo guitar is an excellent instrument for the eco-conscious guitarist and can be obtained for a pledge of $2,450.
