Is this the future of the acoustic guitar?
As far as I am aware, the reAcoustic guitar by Amit Zoran is only at this stage a concept. A virtual guitar.
Nevertheless, it's an interesting concept: an acoustic guitar with individual bridges and corresponding individual carbon fibre sound chambers for each string.
Part of the concept seems to be that the guitar would be modular; the player would be able to swap out and change the sound chambers depending on the tone they were looking for.
I have to wonder what it would sound like. Would there be any real advantage to having individual sound boxes for each string? I guess the only way to find out would be to build a prototype.
