About Dart Acoustic Lap Steel Guitars
Dart Hawaiian guitars are made in the traditional Hawaiian style of the 1930's, the sides continuing up to the head stock making the neck hollow. The guitars are inspired by Weissenborn, Kona and Knudsen style guitars, but are not copies. Ben Harper currently owns three Dart Steel Guitars. Harper played a Dart Hawaiian Steel Guitar on Glory and Consequences on the CD, The Will to Live.
Dart Hawaiian guitars are typically made from either Koa or Mahogany woods. Koa being a little bit brighter in tone.
