eL Welker e-L model: leather and phenolic resin


Larry Welker, the maker of this guitar, claims that the leather wrapped around his archtop semi-hollow guitars enhance their sound by balancing their harmonics. This, a certain taste for post art deco design and innovative concepts such as the phenolic resin rods stoptail or the finger rest that is also a 'drums emulator' make this eL Welker e-L a quite interesting instrument. 

I like to see people who keep experimenting and developing guitars, it's refreshing after seeing 10 000 made-in-China strat copies while looking for the next gem to show on Guitarz....
