Hi, I'm currently finishing up my DT a level in which i made an ergonomic guitar
part of the coursework requires me to get some feedback from a 3rd party on the final product, so if anyone could write a few sentences on what they think, that would be a huge help!
Cheers
Chris

I like the backside relief carve along the top middle...but can't help thinking a bit on the frontside top back might help increase comfort as well.

A little- very little- planing on the backside between the neck joint and the lower horn might also improve comfort when using the highest frets. Just enough to angle that area as opposed to having it be at a right angle to the guitar's face.

cheers danny, that would seem like a good idea, unfortunately i cant now the Tru-Oil is on!

i did however use the plane at the bottom end for the strumming arm to rest on and to make a shallow gradient parallel to the strings

Oh, I know- and given the placement of the selector switch, you wouldn't have much room to do that planing in the neck area anyway.

But its something to consider for the next iteration of your design.

Yes thats true, the grain would look very interesting around that area if it was planed!

Thanks for your feedback
