As an Iranian born classical guitarist Babak has always desired to
capture the oriental roots of his instrument. He arrived in the United
States in the beginning of the new millennium and was so surprised
by the diversity of the Bay Area. In this cosmopolitan region he made
friend with many musicians. He discussed with Matthew Grasso the
possibility of a developed acoustic guitar with additional frets and
strings. Scott Richter liked the idea and began to work on building
the guitar in 2006. The guitar was finished in early 2008 and since
then Babak has been discovering the possibilities of this new
instrument by composing and improvising on it.
