This was the time when I needed a guitar to travel. It is not always possible to carry a regular guitar into the aircraft cabin - sometimes airlines demand to pay for an extra seat. So I decided to make a guitar that could be folded into a backpack. The material for the new guitar is an old acoustic bass from China - a mahogany neck. A friend gave me two boards from India, these are Teak and Mahogani trees, from which I made a body. I also ordered the pickups from China, these are the most budgetary ones - $ 1 and $ 3. The bridge was made of duralumin. Finishing coat - oil with OSMO hard wax. The guitar sounds good. At that time I did not understand ergonomics, so the body of the guitar turned out to be small and completely uncomfortable, and I decided to remake this guitar. At the same time, lower the strings as low as possible, and for this you need to increase the fretboard radius. This will happen later because I intend to significantly improve the body and ergonomics of this guitar.
