Inspired by the vintage futurism of mid-century electric guitars, Canadian Luthier Leila Sidi pays tribute to them while accommodating contemporary manufacturing techniques and materials.

Conventional and original components generate fresh instruments with iconic tonal character and creative spark. Sidi applies an updated futuristic vision of her craft, conceiving of electric guitars ergonomically suited to musicians of any body type.

She currently builds out of the Clubhouse in Edmonton, Alberta with her mentor, Dion Guitarsand shop mate Turley Guitars.
