back to cardboard


My last research in guitar design led me to go back to some sketches I made a couple of months ago and rework them with a different perspective. I mostly like big bodies (probably because I'm big) and my first idea was to create thick chambered solid bodies - with the influence it would have on the sound of the guitar. For this guitar I would rather go for a thin and sculpted body, removing material in the most ergonomic way to make it very comfortable. From was I could judge from the cardboard model, it's well balanced and quite enjoyable to wear already, I will make it heavier for a more accurate feeling. I used a baritone scale of 30 in.

I mainly use recycled paper and cardboard but I got myself good pencils recently - it helps for better drawings.
