All in the name of science of tone.
What good is sound beyond the range of the human hearing?Overtones? Glenn MacDougall was quite boastful about the overtones that his guitars produce beyond the range of hearing. He would measure them with an oscilloscope. He claimed that the Bandit with its "compression bridge" continued to produce overtones beyond the range of the scope.
"That's what makes the treble so sweet."
Woulda been nice to see more depth in the measurements. Too crude I think. I could hear differences. Seemed less "open" everytime he hacked off a piece. Of course maybe my ears ain't what they yoosta be...
Actually when I think about it, you are right.
If you've been over there, it's amazing how many acoustic guitars some of them have. There are so many different sizes, different woods, scales, 12/14 fret models. I've learned a lot from them. I wish we had more of an acoustic presence here but it just seems it is not going to happen. I see quite a few members here on this forum also frequent AGF.Those professionals need new guitars.
