The chapter about design in “Making Masonite Guitars”;
To gain more insight in all aspects involving guitar design I made this schema. It is like a map for instrument makers. Showing how all factors are interrelated and influence each other. Twelve concepts in four domains: ‘Feel’, ‘Mechanics’,’Mojo’ and ‘Value(s)’.
You see that the three subjects on the left are also on the right of the page. This was intentional. Print out this schema and roll it up to make a cylinder. Or print out two and make them into a larger roll, making it easier to oversee all aspects.
