The Cithara Aphrodite model captures the pure radiance and stunning grace of the Goddess of Love and Beauty while paying special attention to the needs of most female players. The Aphrodite combines graceful lines with shimmering silver inlays. There are two myths to tell the tale of the birth of The Goddess of Pleasure and Procreation. She is either the daughter of Zeus and Dione or she arose from the foam of the sea. A dove, a seashell or an apple best represents her and she is often pictured carrying a mirror.


When creating the various models for Cithara Guitars, Daniel felt that the needs of female guitarists were often overlooked. The intent of the Aphrodite is to fill that void. Daniel designed the Aphrodite for the female player. Having a lighter body, narrower/thinner neck, and sleek body design, the Aphrodite lends itself perfectly to the female player.
