Electro-Acoustic Hollow Body Seven-string guitar
different types of wood
Various Kent Armstrongs and Gibson’s pickups
The guitars are very different from each other, but they shared some interesting features, including the hand-carved top and a rare bracing construction with only one diagonal bracing. This gave the guitars a clear sound. The instruments were lavishly decorated with seven-layer plywood bindings, beautifully decorated f-holes and hand-carved floating ebony pickguard.
This rare seven-string model has many of Albanus’ signature features, including the ebony tailpiece, which refers to the fact that the maker was primarily a violin maker.
