ジャック・スピラ・ギターのヘッドデザイン!

 

私はジャック・スピラのヘッドデザインがとても大好きです!

ジャック・スピラ自身は、このデザインを「Three Wedges Design」(3つのくさび型)と呼んでいますが、何か、とてもエレガントな感じがします。

このヘッドデザインのおかげで、インレイなどの装飾が無くても、ギター全体のイメージがシックな雰囲気をまといつつ華やかに、そしてとても締まって見えます。

しかしながら…ひとつだけ、悩ましいことがあります。

「オーストラリアって、こういう3パーツ組み合わせのデザイン多いですよね!」と良く言われること…。

ピンと来ましたね?!そう、オーストラリアと言えば、ご存知…コールクラークのギターヘッドです。。

コールクラークは2001年8月に創業していますが、

実はジャックはその前から、この3つのくさびを組み合わせたデザインのギターヘッドを製作していました。

ジャックは1980年代後半、17歳からギター製作一筋で生きてきた人なのでオーストラリアの個人製作家の中では超ベテラン。

ご存知の通り、かのスティングにDitsonギターを製作した実績もあって、オーストラリアでのギター製作家としての知名度はとても高いのですが、日本においては、やはりコールクラークの知名度の方が圧倒的に高いですからね…。

「オーストラリアって、こういうデザイン多いですよね…」とたずねられることはまあ何も問題ないのですが…。

実は先日、日本での展示会でブースにご来場された方から、

「コール・クラークのデザインを模倣したんじゃないかね?」的なことを言われた時はちょっとショックでした…。

「ジャックの方が先なんじゃい!」と言ってやりたかったですが、温厚な私(笑)には、とてもとても…、そんなことは言えません…でした。

当事者のジャックは、あまり気にしていないんですけどね!(笑)

ジャックは、コールクラークのヘッドを「リッケンバッカーみたい」と言います。ジャックの目には、コールクラークは全く別物に見えているようです。

実のところ、かくいう私もジャックと初めて出会った頃は、このようなデザインのヘッドはオーストラリアで流行っているのかな…と思っていました。人のこと言えませんねぇ…笑。

でもオーストラリアに移住してずいぶん多くのギター職人と会いましたが、こうした3つのパーツを組み合わせたヘッドデザインは、ジャックとコールクラーク以外に私は知りません。

それだけ日本ではコールクラークのイメージが強いということですね。

でもこれだけは言いたい!

ジャックはコールクラークが設立される前から、Three Wedge のデザインヘッドを作っていたんだということ。。

まあ、当のジャックはコールクラークを「全く違うデザイン」だと思っているくらいですから、本当にまったく気にしていないようなんですが。。

でも確かに実物を見比べてみると、同じなのは3パートに分かれていることくらいで、デザイン、細工、コンセプトが全く別だということが良くわかります!

ジャックが「Three Wedges」と呼ぶあのデザインを考えた経緯を、ジャック本人に聞いてみましたところ、ジャックはアールヌーボーや、アールデコのデザインが大好きで、あのヘッドデザインについては、戦前のアール・デコをイメージして作ったのだそうです。

見れば見るほど、美しいジャックのThree Wedgesデザインのヘッド。

このインパクトあるデザインに「ひとめぼれ」したのは言うまでもありません^^

実は、そんなジャックの3 Wedges Designにも、今に至るまでのいろいろな経緯があります。

そんな過去のデザインの経緯を画像で、下記にいくつか載せておきますね!

もちろん今でもご要望があれば、下の画像にあるような過去のデザインでヘッドを製作することも可能ですし、1本1本すべてが、ジャックによるハンドメイドですから、ご希望に合わせて、全く違うデザインでの製作も可能です!
