Re: bows for guitars
The basic problems are
1) the body of the guitar gets in the way
2) the bridge for a bowable instrument really needs to be curved, so you
access individual strings ( so the fretboard needs to be curved too)
so the only good solutions I know are
1) a custom built instrument
2) ebow ;-)
3) there's a technique I sometimes used for bass which would work with
guitar, only works
for the two outside strings and not that easy to co-ordinate, but I can
share that if you like.
has a custom instrument.
