I think, like any instrument they are magnificent. These are complex and impressive, too. For those that love and play them, congrats on a place to noodle and kanoodle with others who share your harp guitarism.

Posted a link on a harp guitar to a friend who is an accomplished harpist who also plays guitar. I think they are fantastic, and open up a plethora of options for the adventurous musician.

Hi J.R. & Co

Congratulations on the new 'Harp Guitar' section! We have definitely noticed the growing popularity of this beautiful instrument, well deserving of its own category!

Just yesterday Andrew came from the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee to the Hills of Donegal here in Ireland to pick up his Emerald Synergy X7 travel size harp guitar.

Wishing you all continued enjoyment talking all things harp guitar!

Best wishes from all the team,

Sean

It is great that we now have a harp guitar sub forum! Thanks, J. R. That Emerald looks like it would be a blast to play.

Best,
Jayne

I think I requested this a while back. Glad it eventually happened. I have been drooling over a few Emerald guitars/ukes these days.
