Thread Name: Small Guitars?
Subject: RE: Small Guitars?
Answering Murray: My homemade folding guitar started out as a dresser drawer, which I modified and used as the box, I narrowed it at the small end and put a trap door in the back. Tension is maintained with a heavy piece of piano wire, adjustable, There are no tuning gears,it's tuned with tuning pins at the butt end. Wheb foldingI place several capos down the neck, gather up the stringsthrough thr trap door with a strip of rubber and tie them down. Lane Goldsmith
