Default sound ports

Thanks for the compliments MBE & NEMOMAN on the sound holes ports.

Mike - I never liked the open hole look on the side of the guitar - it looked unfinished to me, so I decided to "tune" the box and engineer out the holes. A few years ago I was only putting one hole back by the bevel - the rear one. I figured I could somewhat "triangulate" the sound to the player if I added that second one up front...not stereo, nothing like that, but just more of a 'directional' sound. I feel like it opens up some of the higher frequencies to the players ear. It allows them to hear a different "perspective" of the guitar.

Hope that doesn't sound too mumbo jumbo - in short, to allow the player more chance to hear the higher frequencies when he/she is playing.

Have a great day.


more pics tomorrow.
