Karol Belair Harp Guitar Natural, 2021

Karol Belair Harp Guitar Natural, 2021

Here’s an unusual, beautiful and spectacular piece – a Tony Karol Belair Harp Guitar, combining salvaged Bearclaw Spruce and Cocobolo with a fan fret fingerboard! Harp guitars date to the early years of the 18th century and the first true harp guitar appeared in Paris in 1773, built by Naderman.   He called this instrument a ‘Bisex’,  meaning double six – six harp strings and six regular strings.   Over time that term has taken on a rather different meaning.
