Die E-Gitarren von Rainer Tausch haben einen ganz eigenen Ansatz. Eigenständigkeit gepaart mit bestem Handwerk und erstklassigen Materialien liefern hervorragende Instrumente. Pro Jahr werden nur ca. 20-30 Gitarren in kompletter Handarbeit erstellt.

English Version

"A semi-acoustic body made of Pear wood makes the 665 sound fundamental powerful with an amazing tonal selectivity. A one-piece Maple neck supports the sound characteristics of the body. The "set in" neck joint enables comfortable access up to the highest registers.

The outstanding characteristics of these instruments can be summarized by the following quality, construction and design features:

  • straight perfection-oriented design, keeping a close watch on top craftsmanship down to the smallest details
  • semi-acoustic concept featuring a full-length sustain block and a "set in" neck
  • hand-selected, meticulously chosen woods
  • high quality hardware and electronics
  • Pickups by Harry Häussel
  • 26 3/16 inch scale (665mm)"

"To build and play musical instruments is one of the coolest things at all.

Born in 1968, I grew up in a time when electric guitars were playing a central role in contemporary music. Due to its fantastic versatility, easy handling and the possibility of producing enormous loudness, the electric guitar was an ideally suited tool for the players of the still young rock music genre.

Totally fascinated by electric guitars, I started with my first chords on a home-made instrument in 1980. Three years later I was already playing in a band...(and I still do today).

Apart from that I was also gathering field experience in recording studios by handling various manufacturers‘ instruments which were often modified by myself. In the early 90‘s I started thinking about building guitars as a profession. In order to realize my ideas of sound and design to a full extent, I established Tausch Guitars as a business in May 1995.

Since then, the status of the electric guitar has changed a bit from the symbol of a rebellious youth into a more classical type of instrument.

However, the demands on myself in terms of building absolute high-end instruments have not changed.

The unique sounds of my guitars can be put down to construction characteristics, meticulous and careful craftsmanship and – not least – the sustainable choice of tone woods and materials."
