The project "Indie"

The project "Indie"

Recently I built another semi-acoustic guitar. I named it Indie, because it doesn't really fit into the frame "Blues - Jazz - Modern - Heavy". It should be playable everywhere. This time the model of the form was the classic Les Paul, but I added my personal touch. Meanwhile I have seen "my" form in the guitar and bass, but I'm not the first one to deal with this form. So, now to the photo and then to my objectives for the construction.

The project "000"

The production of an acoustic steel-string guitar modelled on a C. F. Martin "OOO", as shown on the following pages, took place between November 2000 and May 2001. As far as possible, I have refrained from using machines.

After the many experiences through the repair work I wanted to for the first time build a whole acoustic guitar. Since I had never before built a guitar myself, I needed a lot of information, I was surfing the Internet, asked befriended instrument makers and mostly reading to English literature.

What was in the 80s of the hit among Flitzefingern a 'la Malmsteen and seems no longer so fashionable is still in demand on special guitars.
