The paper guitar did stand out from the others - but it should be noted that that guitar was made by an experienced luthier - the others were all made by students.gjo wrote:I have heard that guitar played by Andrea de Vitis in a group of 9 Leonardo Project guitars last Friday evening. 8 guitars were good guitars, one was outstanding - the paper guitar.
Someone told me that Polyurethane glue was used - but I didn't hear this direct from the luthier, so I can't be sure. Several people said that there were 40 layers of paper, and the final thickness of back and sides was about 2mm.astro64 wrote:The attention focuses on the "paper back" rather than the "paper + lots of glue back". It might be interesting to know what glue is used and how environmentally friendly that is.
