16/4-2013 Just started to build a Swiss Halszithern from all local wood.
Just stringed up a model 01 Special last week and today it was delivered to its new owner. Buld of all Swiss wood, all through not a piece of rainforest! A very light and responsive well articulated instrument. Hot hide glue and hand brushed on spirit varnish as on all my instruments.
The first Runesson baritone guitar build and sold. There is a demovideo for it on youtube:
Just delivered a 10-stringed mandolin with fanned frets to Oskar Reuter, a fine Swedish musician.
A customer wanted to have his old Tennis racket converted
into an instrument with four strings….
Here is some pictures from that project.
I got my sign up now, so look out for the golden guitar at Neustadtgasse 3!
I am currently moving to a new workshop at Neustadtgasse 3 in Winterthur.
Here I will have much more space for building and repairs. Plus more light and airy athmosphere thanks to the big windows and open space.
Soon I will also have a small but fine selection of old and almost antique quality
instruments for sale. Restored and guaranteed by me.
I wish you all very welcome at the new
opening 17:th of august!
I finally got a photo of Frank Playing his new Runesson Octavemandolin. Meanwhile I have almost
finished another similar Octavemandolin that will be ready for sale in a short time.
I am also working on
a 10-stringed Cittern that is a special custom order.
Three days ago I strunged up the new octave mandolin and today it was bought by a fine musician!
So no octave mandolin to show on EWOB next week, sorry…
Two new guitars ready and for sale right now!
I am currently working on Guitar No50 and No 49 in my work shop. No50 is a parlor guitar made in the same shape as No 25 – the R2-18 and it will have some special features. For example a striking back made of 9 strips of Brazilian Rosewood with mahogany veneér between each strip. Sides Brazilian RW and the top of Swiss mountain Spruce. It will have a adjustable neck angle for easy adjustment of the string action and a sound hole inlay made of square mother of pearl into a black background.
No49 is a 01 model built of Swiss alpine spruce and German Cherry.
Both guitars will be for sale probably in March.
