Mattia Posted December 14, 2005 Report Share Posted December 14, 2005 Found this on the MIMF, but I gotta share. This has got to be the most insane patent application ever: Clicky! As far as I can tell, this is a patent application for: spacing outer slots on a nut between 3/32" and 5/32" from the edge, evenly spacing the strings between them, possibly even slotting for up to 12 strings (OMG!), and defining the height of the saddle (acoustic guitar, mostly, but somewhere in there it's applied to everything) as ideally taller than normal, at 3/8", and, stop the presses, using a neck angle other than 180 degrees. Preferably tilted backwards, but forwards might be good in some cases. See, taller saddle (ie, over set neck) may mean more adjustment range later! And it's innovative and NEW! This guy's trying to patent basic guitar string geometry and layout. All of it. This is so crack-headed I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
