BigFoot's Newest Guitar
You may be wondering, "What's new and improved with the latest sightings of BigFoot's Guitar?"
I adjusted the upper and the lower bouts of the instrument so it longer needs to rest on bumpers in the scroll. I very slightly narrowed the lower bout. It is still super wide but fits into a little car a bit better. I slightly widened the upper bout, yet it is still not a hindrance when reaching for the upper registers. It makes up for the space taken from the lower bout, improves the visual balance of the form and it actually feels a bit more like what most players are used to. And, again, these adjustments make it so it happily rests on its side in the usual manner of basses.
I also reconfigured ribs and the bend to accommodate my fly over x brace flat back. This resulted in a slightly smaller heel for improved playability.
BigFoot’s guitar Can accommodate a variety of string lengths. On bass #67, pictured here, the string is 39 1/2 inches or just a tad over 100 cm.
