Hello good people,
I am about to embark on a Baritone version of some Grand Auditorium-sized acoustics that I have made. I'm wondering what views you might have on how I should beef up the construction.
I'll be using a 28" scale with 70 through 15 D'Addario strings, tuned B to B.
In its regular acoustic version, I build to:
2.5mm top and bridge plate
2mm tone wood (NZ Rimu)
With a total string tension of about 150 lbs
What should I do for Baritone where I calculate the tension to be 200lbs?
I'm thinking 3mm top/bridge plate
2.5mm tone wood
Bracing +10% size
I look forward to reading all that is posted! Good luck with this project Mac !
Bump to the top! How about some help here for Mac? He is being vera patient!
