To all harp guitar friends!
We’re getting a lot of interest for our B-Compact travel harp guitars with the double necks. One customer got me started on a new concept more like a Theorbo style harp guitar. So here’s a couple Photoshop mock-ups of my new design which we will also be offering in the future as B-Compact harps.
These are only Photoshop mock-ups!
The advantage of the new design is that the neck will come off as one unit instead of two and it will be a bit less neck heavy than the double neck version. So there will only be one SNAP system installed.
We’ll be using Steinberg tuners for the 6 sub-basses and the our regular Gotoh locking tuners for the guitar. The super trebles version will have the guitar neck centered on the body and also the bridge will be centered on the top which will be a great advantage compared to the double neck version.
Price wise we’ll be within the same range as with the double neck models which start at about Fr.4000.- for the 12-string and around Fr.5000.- for the 20-string model (for a rather basic version).
Here some pictures of the rough neck shape. The supporting “stick” on the bass side will also be equipped with a two-way trussrod and a special feature will be the fretless playable fretboard for the two lowest sub-bass strings which will be fun to experiment with!
Please don’t hesitate to contact for further information.
