Acoustic Archtop Bass Guitar

This instrument is under development. My intent here is to provide a bass guitar which had a large body to overcome the shortcomings of many acoustic bass guitars which are little more than a dreadnought guitar fitted with a bass neck and bridge.
This instrument is aimed at providing mobility to bassists used to being tied down to an upright while maintaining some of the tonal and ergonomic characteristics they are accustomed to.

design goals include;
>fretted or fretless versions
>Scale length of 36"
>A large body, 20 inches at lower bout x 24 inches long.
>Body shape must provide comfortable access to the strings.
>Should be able to position strap for upright or normal playing positions.
