Simon Marty Guitars are played by many fine and elite musicians including:
Jose Antonio Escobar
Zagreb Guitar Quartet
1984, Simon Marty was given an Australian Government grant to use advanced
research methods (laser holography and computer finite-element analysis)
to explore and further develop his design innovations. Simon
began building guitars in 1982 because as a player he became interested
in exploring new approachs to guitar design that could produce performance
improvements. He has a doctorate in electrical engineering and science
majors in physics and mathematics.
Commencing a detailed investigation
of the physics and construction of stringed instruments in general, he
applied his ideas to the construction of non-traditional (i.e Torres
based) designs. The fruits
of these endeavours were loud, responsive, well-balanced instruments.
obsessive and consuming interest led to Simon departing from his
career as a research scientist to build guitars full-time (engineering
now being a spare-time activity) and continue their evolution. While
Simon is not interested in building fully traditional instruments, the
aesthetics and fundamental Mediterranean quality that attracted him
to the guitar in the first place remain the guiding principle of his
