Entry for July 2020's Guitar Of The Month is open - ENTER HERE!
I am a newb. I would like to build a new kind of travel guitar(I think). This would be based on a cut down acoustic bass neck with a wide fretboard, but shortened by lopping off the top few frets for a total string length of 24 inches. Steinberger bass tuners, electric pickups, headless design. What I am getting at is a bass/baritone uke idea (4 strings), heavy strings for a lower sound, more like the middle 4 of a six string., but shorter for travel, solid body. Am I pushing the physics too much. Any good design books out there? I am looking for that Dick Dale sound. Any help?
