My goal for the GGBO is to fundamentally expand the definition of what a guitar can be. I will be making an acoustic-electric bass guitar with a floating top and a few unique departures from what usually constitutes a traditional guitar or bass. While the incredible current pace of aesthetic progression in lutherie continues to astound me, I feel the fundamental physical resonance of the guitar has largely stagnated since the invention of the solid-body electric guitar. I intend to break that stagnation. While I don't yet know whether the concept will truly work, I'm thrilled to have the chance to share it with the world and build alongside so many talented artists.
