HMS Orion is a small steel string guitar. It’s light, handy and easy to play. My idea was to build a guitar which is easy to carry on your shoulder while walking by the railroad, towards the next town and the next gig –– a real ”blues guitar”. The material choices, the Mahoganny top and American Walnut back and sides, are what gives this guitar its bluesy sound and outfit, and a dark, groovy and fat timbre. You’d better give it a try…
