I also find interesting the picture on the web page you posted, with the strut structure: can it be I just "missed" them then somehow?
I don't see how you could have missed the struts if they were there. It's more likely that Burlot has taken the same basic idea in a different direction.
I wonder how many professional guitarists regularly play these kind of guitars...
One thing about us guitarists is we really notice what others (especially pros) are playing
There's a list on this forum of "professionals and their guitars" that does a pretty good job of documenting who plays what. Also, most websites are quick to point out their most famous customers. For whatever reason, I think guitars with very large ports are still fringe instruments and have yet to gain much of a following by either pros or amateurs.
And yes, I have started playing as many guitars as possible (I think I really tired at one point the people at the shop where I bought the latest one, which is of course only a "passage" one towards a more professional instrument):))
Ah, I bought a couple of "passage" guitars as well. I still have one and use it as my backup in environments that might be hostile to my Trezzini. Be careful, those "extra" guitars have a way of piling up on you!
