Guitar No. 38

Date Completed: 
Saturday, November 12, 2016

This guitar includes some small design changes that have resulted in some big gains in projection, sustain and even response. With this iteration of my lattice design, I went back to guitar no. 31's laminated back and kept the extra thickness of the sides that was introduced with no. 37 while "opening up" the bracing on the upper bout of the top. Some minor changes in the top bracing and adjusting the tornovaz helped me hit my target resonances with this guitar. Every change and measurement has been recorded in detail and I expect to be carrying these amendments forward into the new 2017 lattice model.
