    How does this work? Are there magnets or is it just friction? How does it stop the truss rod from coming out?
    I'm looking at building a microtonal guitar myself.

    This is incredible! I don't need to buy two guitars! I can get all the sounds I want from one! This is so great! I have to get one of those guitars!

    As little innovation as the guitar has seen in the last 150 yrs, this one is very significant and worth considering.Endless possibilities, thanks for sharing.

    istediğiniz kadar perdeleri çıkartın, takın yenilikler yapın, duygu olmadan komalar sadece bozuk notalardır.

    Can these be tuned to Pythagorean Temperament?

    4:03 How would he go about tuning the guitar with a regular fret-board to have the micro-tones on a couple strings? Is he basically just tuning the G and B strings slightly flat? Is there a video where I can hear or see it done?

    Hello! I really wonder how it's conforming to truss rod adjustments. Can it really grab the board around neck bend? It looks like some magnetic sheets are used to achieve this instead of more complicated locking mechanisms which I like but do you think would it hold it's strength on a longer scale neck such as a 34" bass around the 5th to 12th frets because that's where the most truss rod action is going on.

    That's a very old idea actually called Novatone. But they approached it in a weird way like people had to send their guitars to them for an irreversible mod then some failed horribly by bad glues, bad magnets, bad craftsmanship etc. Anyway, thank you.
