Guitar maker Rick Canton and jazz guitarist Tim Miller have been planning a custom electric guitar for several months. Recently, the two met in Boston to firm up the design. Rick brought along his Ergo 2 guitar, now known as the “Equinox”, so that Tim could try it for a tune or two in his three set gig.
Tim opened the first set with his green basswood Klein and did a jaw dropping version of “Fall” by Wayne Shorter. In between sets he said, “I’m going to tune up the Equinox and test it out.” Tim ended up playing the Equinox for the next 2 sets. He really liked the tone and the feel of the neck profile, which was the final design tweak to his custom.
Here’s Tim Miller on the Equinox Electric Guitar:
In addition, Rick has several other projects in the works. Over the next few months, we can expect an ergo bass prototype, a new mini model and an ergo guitar for our friend Al Shaffer. BTEG looks forward to sharing all of these with you.
