[Solved] Guitar build #2. Smaller size.
I've begun the drawing phase of guitar #2. It is going to be a smaller size guitar with a 12th fret neck joint... and of course I want it to be a little more challenging so I'm thinking on putting an arm bevel on it. I just finished the drawing of the soundboard bracing and would love your opinion.
No, not yet! I just googled an image.
Jacob of Canna guitars does something similar, but he actually puts a soundhole there. It's quite a clever workaround of the fact that the hemprock material he uses for the back bowl of the guitar (think Ovation if you haven't seen Canna) doesn't do concave sections well (it shrinks massively as it dries so it tends to pull itself taught over indentations in the mould).
He has a second one in the opposite side facing the player.
