Gerard Gilet has quietly been making collector grade acoustic guitars for over 40 years. His ethic is simple - to make the best guitars possible, crafting them from increasingly hard-to-find exotic and indigenous timbers with a mix of science, old fashioned knowhow and an uncompromising approach to quality. It's a recipe that has established him as one of the most highly regarded luthiers in AustraliaGilet guitars are a high quality, hand crafted instrument designed for the player. They are renowned world wide and have been purchased by international stars,, local musicians and people who just love guitars and want something special.
Gilet guitars employ construction techniques that enhance the tonal and physical qualities of the instrument. The guitar tops are thinned by hand from the centre to the edge and are joined to the sides with substantial reversed kerfed linings. These linings provide the sides with rigidity to support the top so sound energy is reflected back into the top making the sound more lively. Top and back braces are tuned in relationship to each other, it is this precise machining that creates the timbre Gilet Guitars are renowned for. Structurally, the guitars utilise wooden bindings in preference to plastic and a laminated tail block to increase strength. All guitars feature a custom bolt-on neck assembly which ensures easy maintenance into the future. Gilet Guitars are never over built which can affect the tone, projection and volume of the instrument.
