    I would love to try a microtonal guitar. It would be really interesting to experience more accurate harmony

    The things my 4 year old grandson makes (and thinks up) with his LEGO's blow my mind.

    Hey! Leggo of my Lego! Imagine if you stepped on that with bare feet in the middle of the night...

    Interesting!

    George Harrison and Jerry Garcia would have been interested (among many other's).

    I might be closed minded but I’m happy with the way traditional frets are, where does it end! Is there a standardized microtonal guitar? Or do you just move the frets wherever you want, I guess I see the purpose for eastern toned music but for my needs I don’t think it’s practical

    That guitar is inspired! Microtonality is great. You can have a lot of fun making up your own tunings by ear. They very often come out microtonal and can be a lot of fun to play with.

    It's definitely cool, but the relatively large fixed interval between studs makes it so any *useful* xenharmonic system is impossible. definitely not getting anything resembling any EDO system or otherwise. a great project to enjoy with his son though!

    So... What’s the point of this? Everywhere he uses the “microtones” it sounds unpleasantly flat/sharp to me. ...Because it is.
