Gittler fishbone guitar... Know anything?

Anybody know of a web link to this guys work? This guitar was used by Andy Summers in the Synchronicity video. It is stainless and looks like a fish skeleton... just truss rod, frets with no body. I'd love to get my hands on one... I've read that Allen Gittler (designer) moved to Isreal and changed his name to Bar Rashi. He's still building guitars, but i can't find any info on him.
I have a few pictures of the guitar. but thats about it. Anybody familier with his work?

Cool stuff, Kevin... it's great to see one of those things still around and being played.

I couldn't get your site to load directly in the browser window. I had to load up the .swf file itself.

Could you give us a bit more about the history of your particular Gittler? How (and when) did it come into your possession? What's it like to play?

OK, I'm going to lock this thread. You can't advertise your products here without becoming a vendor.
