This instrument was the first of its kind. I developed this model in 1994, and due to the complicated construction I only ever built four.

When playing the instrument in a classical fashion, the slanting soundboard on the treble side of the guitar provides more mobility for the fingering hand in the higher notes. Through the resonance chamber system (see 'classical guitar' page for more details) the frequencies from the neck are also being amplified, creating a clear and transparent sound centred on the middle frequencies. This guitar excels through fast and direct action.

The instrument was intensely used and therefore suffered some damage over the years. I have now completely restored and re-varnished the guitar.

Materials:

I am selling this instrument on behalf of a customer. I built this guitar in 1999. The instrument has some small signs of usage in the varnish but is otherwise in good condition.

Dear friends and customers,

The Welsch family would like to thank all of Knut's customers and express their gratitude for everyone's kind words.

The closure of the business side has now been completed and all outstanding demands from third parties have been met and no new demands can be processed.

Due to popular demand the Freewheel tuners will probably go back into production around the middle of the year.
