The Incredible Harp Guitars of Luigi Mozzani
by Gregg Miner
Chapter 7: Mozzani's Followers
|As Mozzani appropriated ideas from Schenck, so too did he inspire others to experiment further with his own designs. By far his most notable student was Mario Maccaferri, who in many ways mirrored Mozzani's career as a concert performer (also on a harp guitar of his own design), luthier (the famous Selmer guitars made famous by Django Reinhardt) and innovator (plastic guitars and ukes, among other inventions).|
|Maccaferri, c.1926-1929, Italy||Like Mozzani, Maccaferri occasionally made harp guitars without a hollow arm.||Maccaferri, late 1920s, Italy||Maccaferri, designed for Selmer #278, c.1933|
