The lyra harp guitar is inspired by William Eaton who built the original Lyraharp Guitar. Played like a standard guitar, the harp guitarist can pluck the harp strings or let them ring along with the melody strings adding depth to the overall sound.
The top is Sitka spruce, back and sides are Hawiian Koa wood. The necks are made from mahogany and topped with ebony. The body and necks are trimmed in curly maple.
There are a total of 24 strings, 10 sub-bass, 6 melody and 8 super trebles. They can be tuned any way the played wants and sound great when tuned to open tunings.
