Strings of Joy No.2

The Epic Maple Burl Series of Five

Wood Sculpture You Play. This Series is created with the emphasis on WOOD. I  like to believe these string instruments grew out of an enchanted maple tree.  The Epic Maple Burl Series returns to traditional sculptural guitar forms, then fearlessly pushes the natural wood product idea clean off the deep end. Over-the-Top Burl rosettes, bridges, heels, tails, sides and zippers. Because I can, while asking the question what is the effect of this excess on the traditional guitar voice. Emil Ernebro, world class finger-style guitar player answers the question from Gothenburg Park, Sweden. Click youtube link above. Just Wow!
