Armes Race, ‘Nº 1 "ARMES RACE AR Group 1"’, 2015, Chamber

A handmade, solid body electric guitar modeled after the Fender Telecaster and a point-to-point wired tube guitar amplifier—single speaker, 15-watt design with a natural rattan face—constitutes the debut equipment collection from Armes Race.
Inspired by the clean lines and minimalist aesthetic of residential mid-century modern design, each element of the set is hand-treated, finished, and assembled in Brooklyn, setting a new standard in elegantly designed, exceptionally engineered musical equipment. The collection highlights the beauty its designers believe should be ever-present in the studio, the home, and the creative life of any musical individual.
