NEW ZEALAND - Maxwell Custom's latest iteration of its Infinitum guitar series reimagines the classical guitar design and is built in salvaged Kahikatea and Black Maire timbers native to New Zealand.
 
Seeking to create a responsive, harmonically-rich sound, Maxwell challenged the internal bracing of traditional instruments, selecting instead to feature ‘single point’ carbon fiber bracing. A single point of contact allows the soundboard to vibrate freely while carrying the string tension, says the company.
 

Maxwell used thermal modification techniques and CNC machining to form the intricate wood shapes. The guitar is made to order.
