Ben plays a Richard Wilson Style 3 Weissenborn guitar.
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Byron Bay Bluesfest, headline artist Ben Harper was presented with a Style 3 Weissenborn guitar by Richard Wilson.
The guitar has since accompanied Harper on tours throughout the world.
Ben Harper's Style 3 Weissenborn Guitar was crafted from master grade Tasmanian Blackwood and features traditional appointments including an intricate rope marquetry binding and soundhole rosette. Intricately engraved nickel tuning machines were selected to match an ornate Byron Bay Bluesfest logo that was engraved into the rear of the headstock.
Richard Wilson is making one of the most exciting and dynamic hollow-neck acoustic guitars out there today.
True to the Weissenborn style and construction with his own unique touch.–Ben Harper
