the ultimate sustainer

about us.

Looking for the ultimate sustain, designer, inventor and musician Tilly Fuchs has approached building guitars with some innovative thoughts. After years of work, a revolutionary new concept has emerged.



The Fox Elyra

A semi acoustic-guitar with invisible soundholes?

Much more that this.

"...a very innovative approach" (translated) This is how the renowned magazine Gitarre & Baß described the premiere of the FOX ELYRA on the Holy Grail Show in Berlin.


The innovative design is taking a different from the common design in guitars, being reminiscent of a Lyra, the "Original Instrument" and predecessor of the modern guitar. With the Fox Elyra a shapely and provoking new version of an elegant, electric guitar has emerged.

The distinct construction method with a dominating neck and the connected components such as corpus and cover the possibility for endless sustain is created.

Additionally the musician has the possibility to change, adapt and mold the sustain to his preference with the exchangeable oscillating disks.
