Beautiful. True art.

Absolutely gorgeous. As much as I like the original design, I think I like this evolution even more.

As always this is amazing, but i would like an explanation about the holes.

How do they affect the sound? A hole would mean less mass, less weight. Keeping in mind that it is not less wood generally, it is less wood in specific places.
Do these holes make any difference?

thnx

Constantine — You are very observant. Yes, I am experimenting with modes of vibration. Tonal differences can be profound.

What if, from certain holes in the wood, you could tune the body of the guitar very specifically, thus giving stronger specific notes?

For example this would be useful in guitars that are made for metal and the player usually tunes his guitar in drop D. What if the guitar was stronger in the hertz of the note D. Is this possible? Am i making any sense?

How about the tele u made? What differences u can find between this guitar and the tele that is bolt-on?

Lots of admiration man from greece from a lot of people, not only me.
thnx again

The holes are definitely something to get used to. Right off I definitely still like the original better...BUT if given the chance to play both versions I just might dig this one better, especially if it has a thinner neck profile.

Keep on experimenting Rick!

Prehistoric and futuristic at the same time: T-rex with a laser machine-gun. Unreal.

I'd also be interested in changes in the sound made by the holes.
