Brilliantly designed and created by Dan here in Fort Collin's Virtuoso Custom Guitars, here is a truly magnificent bespoke 20 String Harp Guitar in Near Mint Original Condition with a custom padded heavy duty original ATA flight case.
An incredible blend of outstanding design, ultra high end woods and precious stone, tremendous sounding custom Highlander transducer and preamp, synergized by a world-class luthier's and his master touch. This is an extraordinary one-of-a-kind guitar that will inspire and greatly deepen your guitar world and collection.
The central body of the guitar consists of a Sitka Spruce top with Bubinga back and sides with and custom laminate Walnut structure on the body perimeter and a Maple and Purpleheart superstructure for the Harp neck portion. The harp neck then integrates with a killer 7 Piece Flame Maple neck laminated with Purpleheart and Bloodwood with the same laminate detail at the tail of the guitar. Two deeply radiant custom Kingman Turquoise cabochons are a beautiful centerpiece and inset into a stylized Ebony main bridge with the other two saddles on a another ebony element, all with bone saddles and a custom per/bridge Highlander and mic system which you send your blended XLR output for an amazing sound plugged in.
The harp bass strings were intentionally designed on this instrument with the bass strings closest to the regular six string guitar and the bottom eight strings can be tuned in a variety of ways.
I know that Pat Metheny, Michael Hedges, Muriel Anderson, John Doan, Don Adler, Tony Seeger, Brin Anderson, Andy Wahlberg, Gerry Palmer, Andy McKee, Steven Bennett, Antoine Dufour, and many more delving into this instrument with some wonderful and diverse music and performances on the instrument.
And a total pleasure to pick this up, the regular guitar plays great and the ergonomics, playability, and sound of the additional strings resonate strongly with a great sound. And even more nuanced and thunder plugged in with an amazing range and voice possible for your compositions.
This is very special guitar indeed and we welcome your questions and inquiries!
