Synergy X7 Super Treble Double Trinity Knot

Joe is a very talented harp guitarist and we were thrilled when he asked us to build him a custom harp guitar with super trebles.
This was our first commission for a super treble build so it took a little bit of figuring out to get a design that suited the small proportions of the Synergy X7. It was definitely worth the effort when Joe sent us the first recordings on it. Pure magic. The small body is very well suited to the super trebles and has a very well balanced tone across the full range. To finish off this custom piece Alistair created a custom double trinity knot relief carving in clear resin.

This was the first Synergy Artisan Super Treble Alistair made. I am impressed with the tone and volume. Being a smaller-sized guitar I was shocked, especially the Super Trebles. I play it at the Kansas City Renaissance Faire. It generates a lot of interest from the patrons.
