RE: Something different (in reply to Sean

Thats pretty neat, i see theres violins too!

I wonder what he uses to make the materials so hard and stuff

Im surprized the guitar sounds so good
I also saw some torres papermasche guitar, sounds good too, it has a wooden soundboard though.

bit off topic but at a shop nearby they sell these cheap guitars, my friend was buying it, so i went to check it out, it was made of compressed newspaper or something, that had wood veneers on the outside, but inside the guitar you could see the letters real clearly, it sounded really bad, or rather no saound at all..They call it great beginners instrument, professional sound.. and they even get to sell it for about a 120 euros... 120 euros for compressed newspaper and fishing string

In 1862, Antonio Torres constructed a guitar with the sides and back made of paper mache' and the top wood, in order to prove that it was the soundboard (top) that gave the guitar its sound, not the sides and back. I believe it is now in a museum in barcelona.




And the end of the fight is a tombstone white,
With the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear, "A fool lies here,
Who tried to hustle the East."

Anyone have an electric guitar out there? Try playing it while pressing the strap tail-button against a door panel. It will amplify the guitar. Better with a bass guitar. The sound is no where as good a a guitar though.
