Sinuous Guitars was not interested in designing and building another knock-off guitar; they felt the world didn't need any more of those. Instead, they approached this with a process that Charles Eames help develop 50 years ago in the furniture industry and, in the end, they feel they have a guitar that has a very sculptural form with a comforting feel and performs like something defined as an "instrument" should perform. The true difference is in how the guitar body conforms to your body. It gets rid of that feeling of playing a plank of wood and feels very natural. Some guitar manufacturers try solving this by cutting out the backs of guitars for comfort, but you can only cut so deep because it is a flat board. The process Sinuous uses allows the bending of the solid wood body into a shape that hugs your body and also rolls away where you do not want it to hit you, all while keeping the guitar thin and without unwanted weight. And the process is repeatable at an affordable price.
The design process for Sinuous Guitars comprises a blend of computer meets handcrafted, manufactured meets old school, utilitarian meets high design. Through ergonomics Sinuous strives feel to create an intimate relationship between the player and the instrument; creating something special and truly authentic is their continual goal.
At Sinuous, it is understood that not everyone prefers the same frets, pickups or even color. So whatever your special request may be Sinuous will do their best to deliver your Sinuous guitar exactly the way you want.
"Cliff here to let everyone know that the Sinuous SD22 is the guitar I have personally chosen to cover the ground of a classic slimline, solidbody humbucking guitar. In the past, I’ve owned and played a great many Les Paul SG’s as well as a few Explorers and Flying Vs, but none, IMO ever produced the rich, robust tones that just fly off the fingerboard of the Sinuous SD22. Sonically, it sits somewhere between an SG and Les Paul and is significantly more comfortable than either due to its brilliant ergonomic and classy design. For all those of you looking for a humbucking guitar to fill that slimline slot, the Sinuous SD22 is my first and only recommendation. I can play any make and model available and I choose to play the SD22."
