String tension jig
3 Replies

Made a jig to measure the tension from different strings using a hanging scale capable of 100 kg. The information about tension is one thing the string makers seldom talk about. And if they have…Continue

Scale length and sustain

I have just finished an oddball August Carlstedt big parlor with a whopping 67,5 cm scale length (mensur), 26.6" for you Americans. It's a light built guitar with wide sides and big volume in the…Continue

Steel strings with treble?

I have a customers guitar that has a very dark tone, the darkest I have ever experienced. Rosewood in the bottom and sides may be one explanation. Sounds really good, but having dark sounding…Continue

Drying by heat before glueing?
2 Replies

When glueing braces or the top/bottom/sides the wood should be dry. The current dryness of the top/bottom/sides will be "built in" the guitar by the glue. If the air and the wood is damp when…Continue

Roger, when are you going to give us the story of this hybrid guitar on your picture?!

Aha! The small tag picture! Well. A very old photo I picked up on the "net"! Someone made an invention to be able to play the guitar sitting down in the easy chair :-)

Roger, I hope you’ll not be be bothered by recieving a personal message and questions from me! My curiosity might be pushing the perameters of what the readership might have patience for on frets.net. I always enjoy your contributions. I just, for the first time, visited your GammelGura page. The work you do is so impressive. I always marvel at your depth of knowledge about guitar sound and intonation. So, in your proposal to explore volume versus sustain, you mentioned, in relation to the 26.6 inch “American” scale Carlstedt that you are working on. In your assessments of sustain, are you using an electronic measuring method of some kind, to be scientific, or is your perception so acute that you feel able to sense the subtle variation? I imagine, from your posts, that you also have exceptional tonal perception.

Another subject is that I had a Google translation of the gammel page and it occured to me to wonder if you machine translate for your posts here? I’ve been impressed with your literate command of English, and assumed it was your own . The web page translation is very sketchy on translating esoteric terminology, like for instance, handleboard and gripboard for, I assume, the fingerboard! So I’m guessing your English is yours! 

I have no Swedish, for which I apologize.

sincerely, Charley Erck
