The Hirsch SB-1 Radius combines the convenience of a travel guitar with the elegant curves of a classic electric – without compromising your sound or fretting style.

  • Full-size neck and scale length.
  • Highest quality woods.
  • Top-spec parts.
  • Unique patented design.
  • Hand-made in England.


  • Lightweight African mahogany body and set neck
  • Figured maple cap
  • 24-fret ebony fingerboard
  • Gotoh Wilkinson VS100 trem
  • Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder and JB Trembucker pickups
  • Gotoh 510 locking tuners
  • 24.75? (‘Gibson’) scale length
  • 1.75? nut width, 2.125? (‘Fender’) string spacing at bridge
  • Weight: 2.1kg

Small body. Big sound. No compromise.

It’s more than just a travel guitar – it’s a proper guitar!

“It’s nice – very well put together and very nice to play.” – David Gilmour

Jonathan Hirsch says:

Can you help spread the word? It’s early days yet for Hirsch Guitar and we’re hoping to go into production during 2011 – if we can generate enough interest. So if you have friends who would like to know about it, or if you know anyone who might be able to help push the project forward, please do point them to this site and share it via your favourite social networks.

I’m doing my best!
