7 String Acoustic Archtop

Background

Description:

This beautiful Artist Signature 16″  7 string Acoustic/Electric Archtop was design and made for the wonderful human being and amazing 7 string guitar player Jon Gearey.

This guitar is a true inspiration for both Jon and I. And what a joy to sit down and listen to him being inspired by it.

Jon keeps telling me how much that instrument is bringing him towards new avenues, even after a lifetime exploring chords and melodies and modes… he constantly comes accross new voicings and chords he never played or went to when playing any other guitars he had before… And that is exactly why I love what I do for and with the people I work with.

This means a lot to me, since vibrations, sounds and harmonics have always been around me and in my life, as far as I can remember. It’s familiar, inviting, inspiring and deeply moving to me… and It feels Like home.

I’m really glad we made that project happen and i’m grateful i’m fortunate enough to have Jon as one of my ambassadors out in the world.
