|This instrument is among the most recent developments created in my workshop. The unusual position of the soundhole, close to the 12th fret region, supports a more effective transferrence of string energy. |
The soundboard is slanted, creating additional room for the player's left hand at positions as high up as the 24th fret!
This advantage is further enhanced by the careful shaping of the neck and fingerboard profile.
The guitar is equipped with an individual length compensation for each string, allowing for a maximum tuning tolerance of only 2 cent.
|In terms of basic construction, this guitar is similar to my 6 string model.||Replacing the soundhole to the upper portion of the body creates a vibrating surface almost a third larger than on a conventional guitar. |
The strings are tuned to: E/F/G/A/B/C/D/E/A/D/G/B/E.
