Soundholes/Soundports on an Eight String “Brahms” Classical Guitar


 A “Brahms” guitar is held like a cello, there is a cello end pin inserted at the guitar’s end block to elevate the guitar just like a cello and a performer usually rests this end pin on a “resonance box”. 

This guitar received a new Western Red cedar top and I moved the sound hole, which is traditionally in the guitar top at the end of the fret board, and made it into to sound holes, one located on each side of the neck in the upper bout. This gives the performer immediate feed back to the sound of the guitar and the music that they are playing.

I am in the process of making a bridge for this guitar, I am excited to see how it sounds!
