  1. Robert, one thing you could consider writing about at this juncture would be a summary of your own “ergo” journey since you started this blog. You’ve done research into many areas; you’ve dug up references and names and been in touch with luthiers; you’ve even built a guitar. I think you started with that, if I’m not mistaken.

    So – where has it led for you? What instrument do you actually play now, and is it meeting your needs? Any gear lust for some of the fine items you’ve profiled here? Are you done with your personal quest for an ergonomic instrument?

    Just a thought for somethin’ to blog about!


    1. Agreed Roger. It’s time for not only a wrap up on the first guitar project (and yes this is how the blog started) but a summary of where I think we are and where it’s taken me. It’s coming… 🙂

  2. Cool. I’m looking forward to hearing about it!

    My ergonomic acquisitions in 2007 spoiled me for nearly all other guitars. 2008 promises to be an interesting year as well. Another cool project is just getting underway, and when something tangible arises, I’ll share that with you. Don’t want to say much, except that it will have 6 steel strings and it will not need an amplifier. 😉

    1. @Roger – Looking forward to hearing more. Sounds exciting!
