B-Compact “Guitarp”

The new B-Compact harp guitars have a one-unit neck instead of the two separate removable ones I used to offer. Thanks to the Steinberger tuners the sub bass section of the neck can be kept shorter with still the same bass scale length we offered before. The whole guitar is less neck heavy plus the backpack is shorter for traveling and makes it possible to carry it onto the airplane even easier! The B-C harps are offered with and without 8 super trebles.

Even though the B-C harp bodies are slightly on the small side they project an amazing rich tone and great volume due to the new improved sound boards construction. Thanks to the sound port on the side also the low basses come across nicely, especially for you as a player.

Reinforced SNAP System

Due to the high tension of the 12 strings the spring in the SNAP system is reinforced and the assembling is slightly trickier than with the regular 6 string neck. After some practice it works just fine as well!
The wide flat section on the neck is is reinforced cross wise with a couple carbon fibre rods in front and behind the SNAP system so it always stays perfectly flat for a firm connection in the body pocket.
