Adapted acoustic guitar

DIY (do it  yourself)  project!

How to make an acoustic guitar accesiable for children who have reduced hand function.
This adjustment was invented by Lei Crombach from Eijsden, Zuid Limburg.

You can tune this guitar in an open E. With the handle you can play the A (5th fret) and a B (7th fret)
With these 3 chords you can play a lot of songs!

In the videoclip below the guitar is tuned in an open C.  (Guitar tuning C G C G C E) You can then play 3 chords C, F and G.

In the final version we used a hammer handle! Hammer handles have a good grip and a leverage effect.

 

 

 

Below 2 version of the adaption. The first version is most easy to build.
