Sound

It has not been the intention to build the guitar scale model such that also the sound is realistic. Nevertheless we were very curious how the model would sound, when finished. After all there are real strings and also the top is relatively thin.

Although it would have been possible to tune the guitar so that the strings sound harmonic (pressing the strings onto the frets would require very small fingers) I just put some tension on the strings to get sound. But not too much, because I don't know how much tension will act on the top and neck and how strong it is.

Jan has recorded three different sounds of the guitar, which you can hear right now:

Hitting the top with my nail

Strumming all six strings

String by string
