  1. Oh? Thank you. Sorry to report no demostration is available as of now. I hope to soon when I come across a talent (willing to endulge me..lol) that can do it justice.
  2. Thank you all for the insight. I will study the interger/ratio subject. (for a 25.5" scale length), The next area of study will be how best to capture the after length tones for amplification. Magnetic or piezo.? For your amusement I include an early rough sketch and link to my craft works so far. ( A fiddle is in there somewhere, lol. ) Again, thank you all for contributing. I have learned from you. Thank you Anders Buen for accepting my invitation. https://mtouch.facebook.com/CatFish-Guitars-185651282048875/?ref=bookmarks
  3. Thank you! Since I have garnered an audience with my query I shall add a bit of insight to help. As I mentioned the instrument in mind will be of a Sitar fashioned design. An unconventional acoustic guitar shape melding in the attributes of Sitar characteristics. A six string, 25.5" scale length, utilizing a bridge of design to acquire the Sitar sound. A traditional Sitar has an array of separate sympathetic strings. I wish not have the separate strings. So I was exploring if the after length of the six strings could be a possibility. A Sitar is supposed to sound unusual anyway, so perhaps some harmonics from the after length would be interesting. My goal of asking for knowledge on the topic is to determine if an length could be acertained as a favorable starting point.
  4. I post yes, entierly for jest and amusment for members in fact of I realize this group is for the masters. I am not of masters. Although I indeed have luthiur (yea, stretching it there..) intrests. And have truly crafted a violin (fiddle). Yes, it needs a little work yet. Thank you.
  5. I wish to have conversation to learn of sympathetic string harmonics properties. To apply to instrument project.. I wish to build Sitar type instrument. I am curious if possible to utilize, optimize the string length from main bridge to tailpiece as sympathetic tonal enhancements. I realize this forum perhaps inappropriate for such topic. Thank you.
