I went and saw The Dead South in Köln (Cologne). What a great Canadian band and I had an amazing time. It is the fourth time I’ve been to Cologne and I  still haven’t seen the city yet.  All the bindings are on the two new instruments. I’m really pleased with how they have turned out. The snake wood was a bit brittle and difficult to work with  but the end look is gorgeous. The next step is sorting out the fingerboards and fretting. This is where the sitar guitar gets a bit tricky because I’m doing  something I haven’t done before. The sympathetic strings don’t go through the neck on his instrument but instead run parallel to the main strings. For the side  position dots on the double neck I used silver. Unfortunately the photo doesn’t do it justice.

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’s Harp Guitar Gathering in America will be  happening in sunny California in October. Will I be going? I  sure would love to, but I will know nearer the time. Check out  the link or click on the picture for more details about the  whole amazing event. 
My friend and college in the workshop Daniel Schippers has recent finished the T-Bird. A cross over of a Gibson Firebird and Fender Telecaster. This  one was the prototype made for himself with an aged worn look. I’m tempted to build some kind of electric harp guitar.

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.
