INTRODUCING THE LIMITED EDITION GT40 VICTORY SERIES GUITARS

COMMEMORATING THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CARS THAT MADE RACING HISTORY.

 

 

Reflecting the styling of the cars wasn’t enough for us. Like driving a GT40, the act of picking up and playing this guitar had to be an inspiring experience. So, from the air scoop hood with a machined brass tailpiece hidden inside, to the way the inset fretboard gently transitions into the body – we paid attention to even the smallest details. The result is an instrument that both car and guitar enthusiasts will be able to appreciate.

— Brandon Fedorick, Luthier —

 

The GT40™ Victory Series Guitars are the result of a collaboration between Hoodoo Guitars and Safir GT40 Spares Ltd, the owners of the GT40 brand. Safir wanted to team with a quality guitar manufacturer to produce a limited edition guitar series commemorating the GT40 cars that conquered the racing world in the 60s. We took Safir’s design concepts and made these one-of-a-kind instruments a reality.
