Synergy X7 Woody Quilted Maple Fan Fret

Andrew came looking for a unique custom harp guitar and was intrigued about the possibility of adding fan frets to increase the scale length on the base side for lower altered tunings. We settled on a fan of 26″ to 24″ and it actually turned out to be a great way to build a harp guitar with the lower sub basses extending from the same continuous bridge. To make it really stand out we selected a very nice piece of quilted maple veneer that was large enough to cover the entire top without a join. Certainly one of our most beautiful harp guitars to date in both looks and tone.
