The Bohlen-Pierce Epiphone Roadie Guitar

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

052-crop Newly Fretted and Placed BP fingerboard from Matthew Dolmage who cut and slotted the board, I fretted it.


The Bohlen-Pierce Epiphone Roadie Guitar is a short improvisation on my newly made BP guitar. I tuned the open strings to frets on the guitar (like you would a 12 equal guitar) but at different frets as an adjustment to what I tuned by ear. The Epiphone Roadie (which had a bad low E intonation) was a $30 used half-scale guitar from Guitar Center which has now fulfilled its microtonal destiny.
