What better reason to do something like music than just because you love it? It's really easy, all you gotta do is quit your day job, and alienate your family, and confuse all your friends, and live in squalor for a few years, and you got it - Bruce Molsky

"New" acoustic guitar design
« on: November 27, 2006, 08:46:20 PM »

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/28/science/28acou.html

The bulk of the text story is about other acoustic instruments, but the page has a link to a video story on a radical design for an acoustic guitar. It also shows a science writer for the NYTimes playing his guitar lefty and "upside down" a la Elizabeth Cotton, and sounding as though he would fit in at PT just fine. Worth a look from you luthier types out there. The link should be good for 10-14 days from today (Nov 27).

Nah, the science writer sums it up well: "as a long time guitar player, I still prefer my old time Lowden."
