Harp guitar lovers
 
Ive stumbled on the world of harp guitars this year,and thought there would be a few others intreged by this style of music.
Mike Doolin is a wonderful builder and has some inventive ideas on how the harp guitar can be built,so here are a couple of his build pics.He built Muriel Andersons 21 string HG ,if youve never heard harp guitar then she is the one to check out first.i think she and Jon Doan are the best.

I love Mike's harp guitars as well as Kathy Wingert's. I have had the pleasure of playing several of theirs over the years. Also, check out Stephen Bennett. He has some amazing arrangements for harp guitar.

Very cool to see that there is now a harp guitar subforum!

Best,
Jayne

Not positively sure but I thought I heard that Doolan had retired from making guitars to concentrate more on playing. Really a shame as he was a wonderful luthier. If I'm wrong on this please correct me.

Yes - unfortunately for those of us who love his guitars, it is true. From his website:

Please note: I have retired from lutherie and am no longer building instruments. I have no instruments in stock for sale, and when one of my guitars comes up for sale used, I usually don't hear about it. I am happy to answer questions about my guitars and designs, but I'm sorry, I will not build you a guitar!

Fortunately for him, he is now enjoying the time to be playing more music!

Best,
Jayne
