4 Underrated Acoustic Guitar Design Elements · Acoustic Tuesday 190

Could THIS single design element be the key between a crappy guitar and a guitar you never want to put down? I’m not kidding — this tiny change can have HUGE impacts on your acoustic guitar.

In this video, you’re going to see the 4 underrated acoustic guitar design elements that have a massive impact on a guitars sound. In addition, you’ll hear how one Tony’s Acoustic Challenge member overcame an injury. Last but not least, you’ll hear from @Charlie Parr and @Molly Tuttle on their new music releases.

This video is really geared towards acoustic guitar players interested in guitar builds. If you’re looking for the reasons why different guitars sound better than others, most people chalk it up to the materials. But, in reality, the design elements of the guitar are just as important.

Too often in the acoustic guitar world, we fixate on tone woods and different materials. Instead, I think it is time guitar geeks start paying more attention to the design elements of a guitar like the bracing and binding.

While design elements of an acoustic guitar aren’t as flashy or easy to understand as wood selection, if you can learn just a little from watching this video, you’ll be well on your way to finding how an acoustic guitar sounds different from others.
