Guitar Geometry


The golden ratio can be used as a basic guide for guitar design. The Golden Ratio, also known as the divine proportion, is a design resource used for millennia, since ancient Greece times. It describes a relation between two segments, one of which is 1.618 times larger than the other. This relationship is found in an astonishing number of instances in culture and the universe, clearly more frequently than pure chance would suggest. So, a guitar designed using this principle would be perceived as consistent with proportions found in art and nature. The figures below illustrate how the Les PaulTM and the StratocasterTM fit into the golden rectangle. Notice the position of the bridge in the Les PaulTM and the precise golden relation between the width at the upper bout and the length of the StratocasterTM body.
