The double neck and the sitar have their backs on. The customer for the sitar  guitar said it was up to me what bindings I should put on it. I was wondering as to  what to choose. I have some beautiful flamed maple but then I thought I would use  some quilted maple that was left over from the double neck. It is a little more  golden in colour and a bit different from the more common flamed maple.   The normal guitar has 4 pieces of bindings. The sitar guitar has 6 pieces because  of the cutaway, plus 3 extra pieces for the vertical parts of the cutaway. The double  neck is a little more complicated because it has 12 bindings and 4 extra bits. Also  the instrument has a Manzer Wedge, which means the cutting of the binding and  purfling channel on the back is tricky. As you can imagine it takes 4x longer to do  the work on this instrument.

My old friend and customer John Doan is taking bookings for  his harp guitar retreat. It is set for June 22nd to the 25th 2017.  All levels of players are welcomed. It takes place in Oregon,  which is a very beautiful part of North West America.  
This year will be the biggest Harp Guitar Gathering in America.  It is happening in sunny California in October. Will I be going? I  sure would love to but will know nearer the time. Check out the  link or click on the picture for more details about the whole  amazing event. 
My customer Robin has decided to sell his 20 string harp guitar. He visited the  workshop so I can do some work on it. It has a sitka spruce soundboard and  Indian Rosewood back and sides. It has a fretless bass section, comes with a  padded case and a Baggs pickup.  
Simon Wahl sold his Sedgwick harp guitar  onto musician Joachim Csaikl. It is always  nice to know where my instruments go in  their lives. I’m looking forward to hearing  what comes from Joachim and hopefully  get to see him perform with the harp guitar  in the future. Also check out his YouTube  channel.
