A few weeks and a lot of shaping and polishing later, the master fingerboard goes into the mould casing...

That went swimmingly, so - on with the epoxy...

Often quoted by myself; "A music string is arguably the most efficient machine it is possible to fabricate in terms of simplicity and sensitivity. Whether it is constructed as a monofilament or as a wound core, it has only one moving part: - just the whole speaking length. Anywhere in the known universe, no tensioned music string, unless it is restrained by damping, can ever be motionless, i.e., without being in a vibrating state, since there are always stimulating forces present which will provoke movement within the speaking length".

This belief led to the invention of: -

The Undulated Fretless Fingerboard (shown here at prototype #006)

more about this... (including Patent specification)... Does it work on an acoustic guitar?

Patent specification: - (stand alone)...

This site was launched in 2001, to advertise the fact that I had invented antigravity, but for some mysterious reason, people have tended to ridicule that thought.

Fair, I suppose but it does make for some cool science fiction...
