What in the world?????
The neck runs thru and over the soundboard, presses down on a ebony 'bridge'.
Builder claims best intonation ever, as well.
I'd love to try that.
Yah, me too. Some kind of fulcrum thingy at the top of the body.
we all know how much guitar players like something new and totally different
Thats a custom made Kent Armstrong jazz pup. At least I think thats what your refferencing.
Can it take a Bigsby?
It will transfer some sound, just like hanging a solid body guitar from a wall hook will make the wall board behind it amplify the sound some. Does it get as loud as a regular acoustic?
Functionally similar to a semi-hollow that has 'a neck' through to the bridge.
This will be the main problem:
Just enough players will embrace it to make the builder think he's got a potential market success, but then get hammered like 2015-Gibson or 1984-New Coke....
Interesting. I hadn't seen one of these before; very high-tech.
Kind of reminds me of the archtops Ken Parker is doing these days - since selling off the Fly models years ago he's been doing a very limited number of archtops per year.
AAAAGH - to be the New Coke, when you wanted to be the New Steinberger or the New Ken Parker.
If it won't work w/ a Bigsby, how about a Floyd???
I'll get my coat. . .
Peace - Deeve
floating neck nice touch, inovative design!
Damn! Just caught a bad case of GAS....
Very interesting....can you post more detailed pics? Apparently six in-line tuners? Won't that disorient jazz players?
Added....second video shows three and three tuners.....whew!!!!
Dang, innovative and sounds awesome in that video. Not to mention how gorgeous it looks. Some jazz guys on the forum are in for some GAS today.
I've seen these before from a thread on this site maybe a year ago.
If you think about it, it's really like the Dulcimers with a one piece neck glued on top of a sound box. It definitely looks better and sounds great.
