This is a pre-order offer for MULTI 3, a unique 20 string harp-guitar currently built by Thierry André (Andre Instruments) in St-Jean-Port-Joli QC Canada.

Coming from Andre's Iconic series, the Multi's are player-friendly instruments, with a harmonic side rendered by its fine construction, its 12 sympathetic strings and its two sub-bass.
