Conceived by Bob Brozman, this giant 7-string baritone hollowneck has a 27″ scale and awesome volume. Bob says it’s “an orchestra on the lap.”
“I am proud to have had the opportunity to participate with Bill in the design of the BEARTONE long scale BIG body hollowbody Hawaiian guitar. All of my dreams came true when I finally got to play it! This 7-string behemoth covers the full range of music, with clear high harmonics, rich 3-dimensional midrange, enormous piano-like bass and a huge dynamic range-from the softest “baby” touch to the “angry growl” available when you lean into your strokes. After several minutes playing this profound instrument, a normal Weissenborn seems a little toy-like. Plus this guitar makes my couch look smaller!
I feel inspired and look forward to creating a lot of exciting new music for slide guitar with this very special instrument. Thank you Bear Creek!”
The BearTone is made from Select Hawaiian Koa, Rosewood binding, dot Abalone inlays, and satin lacquer lacquer finish.
