"Red Kite" - an acoustic lap-slide guitar

 

 

Red Kite is a Weissenborn style acoustic lap slide guitar with a 630mm scale length. It can be made in a variety of woods, the ones shown here are Sapele top and back with English walnut sides and Cuban mahogany top with English cherry sides. I make two different body depths - 80mm and 90mm. Here's a recording of me playing my own composition "Red Kites" on my own Sapele/English Walnut 80mm deep Red Kite in DADGAD.
