New custom , steel strung, humbucker pickups , harness mounted, Double action Pitch Bend harp arrives in Holland ! :-)

I just completed a 32 steel stung electric Double action Pitch Bend harp, for a client in Holland. It has 24 strings with spring loaded pitch bend levers on the bottom ends of those strings. Eight of the strings are just normal electric strings. The strings are all electric guitar and electric bass strings. there are 8 Seymour Duncan humbucker pickups on an adjustable support bar just above the sound box. It is harness mounted and will be used with a cordless sound system to play blues and jazz. The owner will debut with it at the World Harp congress in Vancouver BC, in late July. The finish is flat low gloss balance, with carved and painted gold Harley Davidson flames on  both sides of the pillar.
