Handheld Playable Harp (Guitar Clone)
Uploaded 26th May 2016 at 8:22 PM · Updated 27th May 2016 at 5:12 PM by Esmeralda : Replaced thumbnail with one where the strings don't look so crunchy at thumbnail size
It's found in the Activities section in Buy Mode, where the guitars are found, and costs 800 simoleons. It comes in three textures as below: A light wood with painted medieval flowers, a curly-grained wood with Celtic design inlays, and a dark rough-hewn redwood.
In-game, they hold and play it like a guitar. I've done the best I can to shape and position it to line up with the guitar-playing animations:
However, with all best efforts, please be warned that there will be clipping problems with sims who are not skilled guitarists. As you may know, novice guitarist sims will often bend down to stare at the strings or turn their ear to them, and in those cases, the sim's head and sometimes a bit of shoulder will clip through the harp as below:
But once the sim acquires the guitar skill, the clippage will lessen and they will look more natural. Looks cute when combined in ensemble with other historical instruments as below:
For a look at the harp being played by a skilled guitarist, you can check this YouTube video to help you decide - there's pretty much no clipping there (I chose Hire Guitarist and the game sent my JC Denton sim in a dinner jacket - I had no idea JC was such a talented guitarist): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVPtgbpb_-w
It has geostates like a guitar, so it sits on a stand when not in use, and the stand disappears when the harp is picked up.
Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this a useful addition to your historical musical instruments.

This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

I'm pretty easygoing, please just don't steal or copy my work.
You may recolour my meshes, just please credit me and give a link back here to the item(s).
You may include my creations with your sims, lots, storytelling, etc - just please credit me and give a link back here to my item(s).
Don't claim my creations to be your own work, don't re-upload my stuff to paysites, adfly sites or similar, or to The Gallery.
And, please don't copy my work and upload it here. I learned that's allowed when someone duplicated my Sims 2 Servo conversion and got Featured for it. But, as happened with that person, you'll be disrespected by other Simmers for copying. Because of that, I now ask that if you choose to duplicate my work, you must credit me for having done it first and give a link to my item.
