Sounds interesting T man.....What does it sound like ? I know if you built it it sounds great but how different is it from say my Meredith ?

Here's a screen capture of Andy's Meredith. Is this the same model we're talking about?

Yep, that's the one!

It is laughing or crying?

I thinks it angry, because Andy wont let it rest. Lol!

I see it as two airfoils. I've been thinking of soundhole ideas for my current maple large body build and one of them was to have some part of it follow the contour of the coverplate. That hole shape is one of the things I wish I had thought of. From the sample videos Andy has on the website, the guitar has a really sweet Maple punch sound combined with a really boomy bass. Pretty much exactly my favorite reso sound. Nice job Tooter, hopefully I'll get to play one of these soon.

Was there any change from your earlier guitars in the design or position of the baffle on the Eclipse? Does the carbon fiber neck rod extend into the body?

Heffster, 

             The Eclipse to me has a real "throaty" sound. Also very responsive all over the neck.  Not saying it's "better" than my standard but it's a different sound than any other resonator I've ever heard. And I like that!!!!

 

P.S. And because of the carbon fiber it's light weight too :-)
