Australian Musician chats with Braegen Russell from Timberline Harp Guitars Australia ahead of the Melbourne Guitar Show.
If you’re looking for something different at this year’s Melbourne Guitar Show, stop by Stand A14a on level one and check out Timberline Harp Guitars. Harp guitars are not a new concept, dating back to the 1800’s but chances are, you’ve never had the opportunity to play and hear one live.
Timberline Guitars builds highest quality, hand-made solid timber guitars for prices below where guitars of this quality had ever been sold before. Their mission is to produce premium quality acoustic and acoustic-electric guitars that will make you want to play … at prices you won’t believe.
Timberline use no laminates or composites – all of their guitars are solid wood and hand–finished to an exacting specification. We bring to players the quality of construction and materials that could until now be found only in instruments costing thousands of dollars.
Just take a look at the quality components used – Grover® brand deluxe gold sealed tuning machines, Tusq® saddles and nuts, real abalone and Mother of Pearl – ebony fingerboards and bridges.
The finest and most intricate pin-striping and detailing – not just on their limited edition or premium models, but on every guitar Timberline® makes.
Quality tone woods, solid construction and sound design are the hallmark of every Timberline guitar. Beautiful to hear and see and responsive to the player’s touch. Solid Rosewood and Mahogany bodies, solid Sitka, Engelmann Spruce or Pacific Red Cedar soundboards, Macassar Ebony fingerboards and bridges. And every Timberline is notable for gorgeous Abalone and/or Mother-of-Pearl detailing.
