Short bio: Ereic Weigeshoff:
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.
