Electronic Instruments: Blackbird Guitars’ brings to us the limited-edition Ferrari-branded “Rider,” which gets inspiration from the technology, style, and spirit of the supercar manufacturer. The ultra-rare Ferrari Blackbird guitars that were sold at Ferrari Stores worldwide bear the signatures of F1 drivers Philipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen.

With a Ferrari namesake, it only means that it is among the most resonant, durable and lightest guitars in the world. The Rider travel guitar is compact enough to fit in the trunk of a sports car, but it plays and sounds like a much bigger instrument.

It also doesn’t look like anything else on the market. Its sleek, black carbonfiber means that only high-tech materials and construction while the exclusive Maranello Red interior, accented red A string, and Ferrari Scuderia emblem highlights the passion of world-class Italian motoring. Blackbird Guitars blends traditional guitar-making with design and construction inspired by Formula 1 race cars. Featured on the guitar is a one-piece, hollow neck, carbon fiber construction-and a unique sound port at the head directly influenced by F1 race car design.

But more than its looks, the guitar is inspired by Ferrari’s unique commitment to technology, style, and performance and has a uni-body design that sounds better and is much more durable than any travel guitar available today. Designer and Blackbird founder Joe Luttwak had worked for the storied car manufacturer in Maranello, Italy, and this experience laid the foundation for this thoroughbred of a guitar. He said that many ideas for Blackbird Guitar’s models were inspired by his time at Ferrari. See the original Blackbird Video
