Skytop grand concert guitar
Here for sale is a beautifully made Skytop guitar. Skytop guitars are made at the foot of the Shawangunks near New Paltz NY. Eric Weigeshoff has put the utmost care into this fine grand concert size guitar. Bear-claw Spruce top, with sides and back of solid Pau Ferro (like a Bolivian Rosewood) Finger-style bracing with Taller brace at the “X” and the “X” is further forward. “Player Focused” guitar with top side sound ports. When you play it, the sound comes right up to you as if you had a personal monitor, yet it still fills the room. The Top has been tap tuned to “B” and is bound in Cocobolo Rosewood (Mexican). Single line perfling throughout.
See:http://www.skytopguitars.com and listed below is a short bio:
Coming from a design and film background, I am driven by instruments that are not only sonically viable, but interesting and unique aesthetically.
Foregoing a traditional soundhole, my side-soundport guitars direct the sound up towards, rather than away from the player. The result is an experience unlike no other guitar you have played.
When you purchase a Skytop Guitar, you will take the journey with me as your guitar is built and documented every step of the way.
