As with previous attempts at "electrification" of classical instruments, it is vital to maintain the basic contact points of the instrument on the player. This will provide a smooth transition for experienced musicians. The instrument will also have an adjustable shoulder rest, stabilizing it and preventing unwanted rotation.The idea for the structure comes from a truss bridge, evenly distributing forces when the neck is stressed by the tension of the strings. The final profile shape was drawn in CAD and laser cut onto red cedar planks using a laser cutter. Red cedar is a local wood that is abundant, beautiful, lightweight and highly resonant for body-less instruments like these.
