The Bouillez: A New Twist on the Acoustic Guitar

You’d think that after thousands of years we’d have figured out every way to make an acoustic guitar.  Apparently not.  From Gizmag:

Dan Bouillez believes that having sound come out through a hole in the soundboard at the front of an acoustic guitar is impractical and inefficient. He says that his patent-pending design takes clarity, volume and true frequency to a new level, producing a bright, warm sound, crystal clear tone, and improved response to every pluck of the string.
“The Bouillez was conceived some time ago and the first prototype was built from scraps in my garage and a 60 dollar guitar to confirm my concept and innovation would work,” the guitar’s creator tells Gizmag. “The sound that the Bouillez generates is so much different than a run-of-the-mill acoustic guitar because of the technique, structure and soundboard material used to generate the sound.”
