Let me introduce my 4 persona.

STORY

Why did I think about this guitar

Only Martin Backpacker remained

When I emigrated to India as an expat in 2010, I had to dispose of almost all instruments, and only Martin Backpacker remained. This was left because the AC/DC members autographed the bodyfront and Malcolm Young played a legendary riff of "Back in Black" in front of me. Originally I was not an enthusiastic guitar player, but as I got used to India, time to pick up the guitar has increased and I found the drawbacks of this guitar that I have not noticed before.

Early-style Martin Backpacker is a very advanced and beautiful design, but playability and sound are sacrificed by it. I can not sit and play, It has only 16 frets. Because there is no truss rod in the neck, only extra light gauge strings can be used. So the volume is small. Head dropping is severe. To raise the volume it would be nice to open another sound hole on the body side, but I hesitated to remodel the AC/DC signature.

Fantasized the ideal travel guitar

I did not know whether it could be realized, but decided to design my own travel guitar for the moment. For amateurs, it seemed the most difficult to manufacture neck and fret board, so I decided to divert it from other guitars (Ferunandes Nomad) and made detachable of short scale,·22 frets specification. In order to sit and play, to hang the right side of the body, to relieve the head falling, I brought the strap pin position to the left and made it a Stratocaster style. I added the sound hole on the side for the monitor.

Piezo can make good sound

Meanwhile, the DAW also resumed. In the past you needed a number of synthesizers, effectors, and mixers, but now it's enough for a laptop computer and an audio interface. Pasting the contact piezo microphone on Martin Backpacker, and passing through the amp simulator in the PC makes it easy to reproduce "that sound". It was the moment I found out that I do not have to use Hambacker pickup.

Found a guitar manufacturer

In 2016 I found a guitar manufacturer in Kolkata by chance. I completed my idea right away and tried ordering. What was completed in two months was that the playability was bad and the sound was not satisfactory either. I tried to change the design and reorder, but the owner declined what the employee had made without permission, I decided to look for another manufacturer.

It was introduced from a dealer of Indian musical instruments I was keen to know that an old man was making some acoustic guitars with a flea and a canna at his hut. He can not understood English. But I show a 1/1 design drawing he said he try. There is no reason not to place an order.

Amp simulator in iPhone

At that time, I got the used iPhone 5 and found that the music creation apps are substantial. Tuner, Tablature viewer, DAW and many Amp simulators. However, the sound was good but the wiring was complicated. There are also three cables from the audio interface to the iPhone, guitar and earphone. Recent earphones have only 1.2 m cable. Putting the iPhone on the desk makes me feel strange posture.The idea that the audio interface builting into the guitar came straight to me. In addition, I decided to know the product that uses the magnet to fix the iPhone to the car and I got the idea. Refined the design, fit the width of the guitar to iPhone 5, to be placed between the strap pin and the side sound hole.

I Got It!

It was the 3rd time I got a guitar as I designed (some pictures took at Zanskar is the second one). The sound is not bad. A lot of travelers says they want it. It meens that it is time to think about mass production.
