The Third Lyre Build in row for me, thought this one would be the last, but already have a 16 String Build in mind.
AGP #489 – “Odin”
7 String Lyre/Kravik
Scale: 19 Inches
Strings: .036NW .032NW .028NW .024NW .021NW .018PS .016PS
Tuned: D E G A B d e
The Frame is 50 x 32mm Cypress Pine, the Top and Bottom Sound Boards are some sort of recycled 7mm Hardwood Ply, the Laser Heat Transfer Artwork are Nordic/Viking Symbols, all Timber is coated with a Golden Teak Stain and Spray Can Clear Enamel Gloss.
The Tailpiece is Copper plated Tin, the Ebony Piano Key Bridge and Tuning Pins, are of course from my trusty old $30 Piano, purchased back in 2013, and a Second Hand 7 Pole Washburn Humbucker is hardwired to the Copper Plate Output Jack. :-)
Yep!, there was a bit of time involved with researching the artwork, printing, & applying the symbols to the build, made a little bit easier, thanks to my Son who still lives with us, and is a bit of a Viking-ophile, who knows the names of all their symbols and meanings. :-)
WOW! A lot of time and careful work.
