Success Criteria

When will our Guitar Research Project be successful ?  These are our success criteria:

1)   A clear demonstration that the use of non-tropical woods can be used to make guitars of outstanding tonal and
     aesthetic qualities. Around 30 guitars will be made.

2)   The use of innovative structural techniques to enhance the characteristics of guitars made 
     with non-tropical woods.

3)   The exhibition, recording and playing of these instruments by renowned artists at the Cordefactum and
     Tampere guitar festivals in 2014.

4)   The publication of the findings and techniques in the relevant media. Use of the media to change mindsets
     of luthiers and guitar players to the use of alternative (non tropical) woods.

5)   Creation of an international LGR Network to share and promote best practices and environmental sustainability
     in guitar making.
