As part of my PhD Iím trying to raise £2,500 to have an ergonomic classical guitar prototype built that reduces strains on the playerís body.

I have redesigned the classical guitar to reduce playing-related injuries and maybe even make it easier for novices to start playing by fitting the guitar to the body instead of the other way around. The design is drawn up and ready to go, all I need is the money to pay someone to make it.
