Mark Anthony's custom made 13 string guitar

Mark has worked with Cork based guitar maker Harry McCormick in the development of a 13 stringed guitar. This instrument emulates characteristics of the baroque lute enabling guitarists to perform this music with minimal adaptation.

Mark’s recording of "The Weiss Machine" Volume 1 released in 2015, features his arrangements of music by Sylvius Leopold Weiss (1687-1750) performed on the 13 string instrument. The CD is available to buy from this website.
