The Passion Behind The Ascender

With the Ascender, you’ll never have to leave your guitar – or your passion for it – at home again.


Traveling with a guitar hasn’t been easy. Until now. 

Ciari Guitars Founder and CEO, Jonathan Spangler, knows all about traveling with a guitar. As a patent attorney and lifelong guitarist, Spangler lived the life of a mobile musician, carting an electric guitar from city to city so he could practice for upcoming gigs while he was on the road.

Traveling with a guitar compounded the stress and anxiety of frequent air travel, and yet Spangler wasn’t willing to give up on his passion for the musical lifestyle. He searched for a premium travel guitar – one that was gig-ready and designed for convenient transport – and realized that the guitar he wanted didn’t exist, yet.

“If you don’t like the available options, make what you want and maybe others will want it, too.”

Ciari Guitars are made by musicians, for musicians like you.
