What people say about Celtic Cross ...
"I recently acquired an absolutely gorgeous baritone weissenborn from Rufus Guitar Shop in Vancouver, and am having a blast playing it. The sound that comes out of this beauty is stunning and mesmerizing... I can sit down with it and all of a sudden half the day's passed, I just love it. I wanted just to drop you a note to let you know how much I appreciate your work, and the really special craftsmanship you put into your instruments. This is honestly the most satisfying instrument I've ever owned! So, Thank you! "
