    It's built to withstand earthquakes.

    That is a very cool neck joint... and one which I will not be attempting to duplicate!

    Top rate joinery and beautiful design, but I can't see it making of a tonal difference. Still some amazing work.
    I like the Damascus-style tailpiece and pickguard as much as anything else.

    I would like to know more about the design--I mean, without actually having to research it. :D

    From what I've seen of Japanese joinery, even more complex-looking work turns out to be extremely efficient and minimalist, once you know what they are going for. For example, since Japan has seasonal extremes of humidity and traditional houses are far from air-tight, builders had to take that into account when building. There's also the earthquake thing: the joints had to be forgiving, but stable.

    My thought exactly. Cool tailpiece.

    I too was wondering how you'd shim the neck if needed, but I'd like to think a joiner who could cut that joint shouldn't be producing necks that need to be shimmed.

    It's cool and pretty and amuses me. Would not do it for a guitar I intended to play. Wedging blocks with grain going in different directions is not a good long term solution. Seems gimmicky like juggling torches.



    :D

    Very interesting idea and excellent craftsmanship.
    Schack Guitars in Germany has a system that is a bit reminiscent of this idea. They call it the CNF (covered-neck-fixing) system, consisting of two interlocking brass plates. The neck is held on mainly by the string tension as well as the pressure provided by a stud in the pocket for the neck pickup. Maybe a bit over-engineered, but still a cool design.
