[experimental] two position guitar

This experimental prototype was developed to test a number of new, ergonomic design concepts. The body shape allows the player to hold the guitar in the standard position or in a more upright fashion similar to the way a classical guitar is held but without the need for a footrest. The headless design with tuners located at the tail end allow for better weight distribution. Prototypes with a headstock have also been created. I am currently looking for a player to work with while developing this concept further. If this prototype interests you, please contact me.
