At the Holy Grail guitar show 2015 - Estrel Berlin.
Kinloch Nelson with Multi at The Woodstock Invitational Luthier Showcase NY, October 2015. He is such a wonderful individual, and very generous of his time. On that day, he looked at my guitar, and said: - It gonna go fine!
I left the guitar with him for a few minutes... and he asked if I liked George Harrison ? I told him whatever he came-up with for playing Multi will be all right ; ) His version of -Blue Jay Way- was something to witness in person! Thanks Kinloch! The recording below is not perfect but captures the excitement that was shared on that day.

Workshop view, Mutli back carving in process, 2015
From the first sketches (left) done in 2013, it took literally a years for the idea of a harp guitar to find its way into a dynamic outline.
The more definitive sketch at right hinted a -twisted body- from its lines, and a slim, compact and ergonomic form.
Below is its back carving complete, a few weeks prior to its presentation at the 2015 Woodstock luthier showcase.
One can hear above, Multi played by Jean-Marc Hébert.
Presenting Multi in 2015, André participated in two back-to-back guitar shows. Here is a first picture set from the Woodstock Invitational luthier showcase :
A few days later was the - Holy Grail guitar show - in Berlin. It is worth of mention, as this show was from the beginning put together by the EGB luthiers themselves :
