Hello KenO! Thank you very much for your praise and visit! Here is some info to answer your question:KenO wrote: ↑Mon Sep 11, 2017 3:36 pmBravo! How do you top a first build like this? Amazing! Thanks also for the audio/video. The link to the next video shows another guitar just like this one. Is this your 2nd build Mr. Yanguang Chen? The rosette reminds me of some of the intricate pottery designs you find in ancient Chinese vases. Inspiring!
The rosette reminds you of some of the designs in ancient Chinese vases, but i have another example, i will write some on coming weekend and show some pictures in next post because of the questions from Steve Ganz.Yanguang Chen wrote: ↑Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:47 pmHi brooks, thank you very much for writing so much.Yes, your idea is correct, this is a normal logic.brooks wrote: ↑Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:38 pmThe craftsmanship is indeed impressive. I am curious though: Why did you invest so much time in the ornamentation for a first instrument, when achieving great acoustic results generally takes years of practice, much trial and error, and experimentation? I would have thought that for a first guitar, one would want to minimize the time investment in non-sound related features in the likely event that the tonal result was far from ideal.
I have spent two years looking for learning materials and learn, with my understanding of the craftsmanship, anything has its composition, I dismembered it in stages, practicing for the synthesis of a whole guitar, which is part of the woodwork. My understanding, begin to learn guitar making must endure the temptation of desire of a whole guitar to quick finish, not imperative, impatient and rash.
Acoustics part, I have read a lot of papers about the instrumental acoustics. when doing this guitar, has been initially aware of the guitar frequency response characteristics.Two years later to really start the whole synthesis, a complete guitar to make.
But, a question entangled me, to make a very common guitar? The cpmmon guitar is only a monotonous face, only the decoration, sometimes no complete design theme, as architect I am sensitive to the design. No, I want to personalize my guitar, it needs not only a good voice but also a nice face. This is the original intention of making this guitar, in fact, I have made this guitar twice, the first time , according to my understanding I am not satisfied with the sound, so I saw and open it, again and again...
