Interlocking Celtic knot design inlaid in colorful, sparkly abalone on a harp

Decorative Inlay

Dress up your harp with a delicate inlaid-wood design or the colorful sparkle of abalone shell, which we carefully inlay by hand between delicate strips of multi-layered veneer called purfling. Inlay is available on the FH34, FH36H and FH36S models as an abalone strip around the edge of the soundboard, a graceful celtic knot in abalone on the front of the pillar, or a cherry blossom design inlaid in wood on the front of the pillar. This is a custom option, and it can take about 6 to 8 weeks for us to build a harp with abalone inlay, but it is well worth the wait!

Abalone Celtic Knot

This elegant Celtic knot knot was designed by a former Dusty Strings employee specifically for our harps, and adds just the right amount of tasteful sparkle to the front of the pillar.

Cherry Blossom

This delicate branch with full and partially-opened cherry blossoms is inlaid using contrasting wood veneers and looks gorgeous on any of our FH wood choices. It is pictured below on a bubinga harp (left) and a cherry harp (right).
