Pittsburgh-based InventHelp® attempts to submit clients’ inventions to companies for review.
InventHelp®, America’s largest inventor service company, announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Arizona, has designed a stringed instrument developed for greater durability. This invention is patented.
Last a Lifetime Stringed Instrument would combine the durability of graphite with the look of wood. The neck and body would be constructed from inner layers of graphite bonded to a wood veneer, which would protect against warping, cracking and twisting caused by humidity and extreme temperatures. The design would allow for the instrument to maintain its original setup. Additionally, it is a green invention as the instrument would save trees from being used for guitar construction.
Last a Lifetime Stringed Instrument would consist of a wood-on-graphite construction for the sides, back and sound boards. The neck would be constructed from five layers of graphite bonded between wood layers via an epoxy resin. The sound board, back, sides and head stock would be built from .010 thick prepeg, unidirectional tape, and a .020-inch thick layer of thick book-matched veneer. The neck assembly would be built from .750-inch thick straight-grained mahogany or maple, .010-inch thick plain-weave, dry carbon-graphite fabric, and epoxy resin. The fret board would be built from a section of .250-inch thick by .250-inch wide by 20-inch long ebony or rosewood. The instrument could be producible as a guitar, violin, cello or other stringed instrument. A variety of wood combinations could also be available.
InventHelp® is attempting to submit the invention to companies for review. If substantial interest is expressed, the company will attempt to negotiate for a sale or royalties for the inventor. For more information, telephone Dept. 08-PHO-1090 at (800) 851-6030.
