Description: Acoustic Guitar - 8-String Guitar by Hippner
There are no pictures available for this acoustic guitar
I recently received a new 8-string guitar from luthier Darren Hippner. I have two others which were made by Hippner in 2010. I'm selling one of them, not for financial reasons but rather because it's an excellent guitar and should be played. All three of these are based on a Ramirez bracing pattern, 1960s, and the two I'm keeping have rare Bavarian spruce soundboards - one has Brazilian rosewood back and sides and the other is E. Indian rosewood.
The one I'm selling is Englemann spruce and E. Indian rosewood. The woods are first rate. 652mm string length, French Polish top, lacquer back and sides, treble side soundport, Grover tuners, wooly mammoth saddle (I made it and intonated it).
The tone is beautiful and the balance through the registers is great. I'll provide more information and sound and video to an interested buyer.
If you've never played eight-string before it's an excellent way to play lute music on the guitar, and also great for popular music. I've done many arrangements and will provide some at no charge.
