This is the harp guitar that started it all for me. After seeing the awesome Stephen Benett in concert in Los Angeles with my luthier friend Kathy Wingert I fell in love with the instrument. It so happaned that a few months later Stephen would play in Padova at an event organized by an old friend of mine, upcoming guitarist Francesco Faldani, and so I went to see Stephen again, and, brought over my first Columbia model to see if he would try it. To make a long story short, after the concert Stephen did try the guitar for half an hour, and when he was done the only comment he made was telling francesco he had found who could build him a harp guitar! There started the journey of research for this wonderful and fascinating instrument.
