Runt Guitars is a Japanese electric guitar and bass maker founded in 2016 by luthier Masahiro Goto. The company is named "Runt" after Todd Rundgren's first album. Circa 2016 there were 5 standard models: Sakura, Red, Shimaenaga, Goldmine and Yura. These original designs are inspired by the wild animals that inhabit Hokkaido and feature organic lines with ergonomics in mind. To reduce the stresses on the left-hand, the necks have an asymmetrical profile with a thinner 1st string side as standard. They can also offer customization of the standard models or even complete custom designs.
