Siger Guitars (France)
https://siger.guitars/

In French, can change to English though.
Some nice looking designs.

Brand new company, at least first time to NAMM, per the NAMM Show Exhibitor List spreadsheet.

Nice find! There are 563 exhibitors there!

I'll add it to the Composite List shortly.

Very nice! The guitars look really well done too. I can't believe they actually let you touch the guitars.

On their website, that closeup photo of the wood veneer that feathers in the corners to reveal the carbon weave underneath surprised me.

It's a really nice look and an innovative way to combine veneer and carbon.

They have a sense of design and style and is appealing. I'm not an electric player, but I like these guitars.

Pete Townsend would have a hard time smashing these onstage, but other than that, these seem an interesting idea for electric players.

The way I found these guitars... The girl, Tiphaine, was behind me in a burger line ( everyone always checks out each others tags at NAMM ... its' what we do) and saw she was from France with a guitar company... chatted a few minutes and then I got my edibles and found a seat... a few minutes later seats were taken everywhere except at my table... I waved here over. Oui talked a lil and then I asked if she would pose with the RainSongs... she jumped at this amazing opportunity... no wait..or was it... she was hesitant and I had to talk her into it... let's go with first scenario ... any way we shot a few. She went back to her booth.

I figured she was nice enough to pose so I went over to her booth and low and behold, did my eyes deceive me, can this be real, is this fate?? Their guitars were these cool CF electrics!! Groovy!

Really nice people with accents that sounded so real. Took some photos, which for me is outa character I know. Got her to pose with Journey things next day after some pizza at only $6 a slice, so you know it was good at that price.

I'm sticking with this story for now

These guitars are pretty sick actually- and you could play em' all day without your shoulder hurting. Gotta love CF
