1st acoustic guitar build

Recommended Posts

Definitely a cool project. I've never seen holes in the sides of a acoustic guitar before. Do they make it sound different or louder maybe ?

That's a sound port and enables the player to better hear the instrument. Most of the sound is normally projected out of the sound hole and away from the player. But the sound port allows the player to hear without leaning over and further deadening the sound with his/her body (smothering the guitar inhibits vibration which kills sound).  There's a noticeable difference if you cover the sound port so I guess it works.

That is one fine looking project I like some of the details you added to make it better/unique.  I am very impressed.
