I have tried this as a fretboard- and bridge oil on raw wood and it's very good indeed. This is not an oil or a wax, but similar to nose grease/oil. The grease removed from the surface of the human…Continue

Segmented saddle bone and "turbo plugs" revisited

I made a fuzz on this board some time ago enthusiastically telling about the "amazing things" I've just discovered back then. Now time has passed and I have tried out the theories and methods on many…Continue

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 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
