This is the eighth instrument by LoonSong Instruments even though the seventh instrument is not quite done. It is a soprano ukulele made of Hawaiian Koa wood back and sides, ebony fretboard and rosewood bridge.
The seventh instrument is a dreadnought sized 12-
It has a mahogany/maple/ebony neck with ebony fretboard and bridge and a Ziricote peghead overlay
The Dan Vandermeer Custom Guitar is a dreadnought sized 6-
That name belongs to the inventor of the “Strumstik” so I’ll call it the Guitar-
It has three strings, diatonically tuned to the key of G.
Never a wrong note when played with others in G
The Redwood Dreadnought guitar is the final guitar made by LoonSong Instruments before closing the shop. The soundboard is made of “sinker” redwood which had been submerged in a B.C. river for many decades.
So as it turns out, Maccassar Ebony is a beautiful exotic wood but unable to contend with the dry winters in Ontario.
Even before the DN12 007 was completed, the back and side woods began to crack.
The back and sides were gently removed from the soundboard and were rebuilt in Black Walnut.
