Looks like a Mel Gibson guitar, (not a Gibson-made guitar)...some sort of back-packing guitar made for a Mad Max movie.
Thank you Gordito158 for your comment.As much a you imply that the shape of the instrument is of a futuristic nature, I would also like to add for the sake of the tradition that the shape is also so traditional as any other guitar existing in our knowledge. In the 13th century the Guitarra Moresca
had a rectangular (oval - in the edges rounded) shape and a long neck. Historically it has been claimed that the Guitarra Moresca
is clearly much closer to the lute than to the guitar. However, the rectangular (oval) shape of the Guitarra Moresca
is a thirteenth century innovation of the luthiers and players of the time, that also refers back to the ancient Egyptian Nefer
and it is not in any way a Kertsopoulos first time innovation or a Mel Gibson or Mad Max innovation, as you kindly comment with a smiley. I enjoyed your comment, but for the sake of the seriousness that this thread has kept please kindly also accept my view which says that this construction of the guitar in this thread is based on the design of the tradition and at the same time it brings forward innovative functions of a pedal and so forth. For the sake of keeping the matters of traditional designs and accomplishments alive it was necessary for me to inform you of the above. Please see below the pictures that prove to us that the 13th century designers and the ancient Egyptian designers are more innovative than what we usually think about them. We usually underestimate them as we do with many other people we associate with.
In the picture below we see the two Guitarras Moresca
, 13th century, original: Canticas de Santa Maria by King Alfonso X.
In the picture below we see again on the left the Guitarra Latina
and on the right the Guitarra Moresca
Canticas de Santa Maria, 13th century.
In the picture below we see the ancient Egyptian Nefer
My best regards and please tell us something also about the sound production of the instrument, after all that is the main concept of this thread's posting, the sound not the shape, it will be interesting to read your views on it, take care, all best, Yorgos
