For Members Only, my full analysis of all 8 known models of Mario Maccaferri.
Plus a surprise HG of the Month!

Three years in the making, this 4-part feature is my most ambitious yet.  Everything we currently know about Maccaferri's harp guitars and playing of same.

I updated and greatly expanded the Maccaferri HG of the Month after obtaining a marvelous new 2006 book on Julian Bream by Stuart Button.  I would recommend this book to all HG (and guitar) fans, as an entire chapter is devoted to the story of harp guitar versus standard guitar - a rare chance to see an historical debate like this.  The book somehow escaped my notice (and that of everyone proofing the article?!), and was just brought to my attention (indirectly) by R.E. Brune.  Never too late for a re-write - that's what the web is all about!
