Â Â Â Larry Welker's guitars, a.k.a eL Welker Guitars, are guitars and basses built by a musician for musicians. From planing the rough wood, to attaching the binding and final finishing, all of the work building eL Welker guitars is personally done by Larry.
Â Â Â It was only a few years ago when Larry developed the unique design for the prototype of his line of leather wrapped archtop guitars, He was impressed when he found that wrapping a laminated guitar in leather did not deaden the sound, but instead diminished the stray harmonics that many players find annoying, while creating a rich fabric of the tonal frequencies that so many people worldwide love in a guitar.Â
