A slightly radical change…Nico’s ax

Nico Audy-Rowland

is a composer and performer of music that ain’t classical guitar.  But he likes to compose on nylon strings.  When he came to me with his martin backpacker, and an idea… He also likes a long-scale baritone tuning.    His idea:  turn the backpacker (610 mm scale) into a baritone (700 mm scale).  This would reguire a new fingerboard with frets place for the new scalelength, and repositioning the bridge….Oh, and he also wanted a midi out.

So, here are some pictures of the project.
