[ acoustics ]Acoustics has been a recognised science since the middle of the 19th century and a great deal of research has been carried out since that time. However, the data can be very complicated and difficult to convert into constructional aspects of a new instrument. As a result, most contemporary guitars are still built by trusting in traditional principles.
