Making A Martin
Well, not really, but this is quite cool in a ‘basic guitar anatomy’ sort of way.
You can step through, at a (very) basic level, the making of a Martin Guitar (or pretty much any acoustic guitar really). You get a wireframe diagram that is built up with extra bits as you move through each step in the process. At every stage, there are some photos and some information about what’s happening and why.
It’s interesting for those of you who wonder how many pounds of pressure an average acoustic guitar bridge is under. Go, have a look – rather weirdly, it’s on the New York Times site.
