Nylon String Chambered Body


Recommended Posts

This is an awesome guitar. I have been wanting to do a nylon string guitar for a while, but was not able to get past the startup cost of doing an acoustic classical. This project has added one more build onto my list. My wife will be cursing your name in no time. :D

Tell her I didn't mean it.

Seriously, be sure to post progress pics here!

And thanks everyone for the kind words, it's appreciated, coming from you guys.

Wow! That's some good work there. I actually have that exact same guitar body here with the original neck. I believe it's an old Harmony Bobcat from the 50's. I've been planning on eventually restoring it to it original condition but now i'm kinda wanting to duplicate this instead.

Again, awesome work!

Do you have sound clips for this guitar?

Now I do! I finally recorded a short video of the thing.

Sorry for the bad quality, could not plug it into an amp to record, it would have pissed off the neighbors... :D

So it's all via my Vox Tonelab SE, then directly on the soundcard of my laptop.

Hope you guys enjoy.

hi, beautiful, beatiful project... I will make one of these! thank you so much.

question: why didn't you carve out the whole of the interior? is there a structural reason? looks like the bridge is basically sitting on that protunding, not routed out piece of the body. Is it supposed to be like that? forgive my ignorance...

well done anyway!
