Requinto Guitar by Roger Williams

We both struggled however to find a solution to the capoing of the first string at the 10th fret.  A number of solutions were tried but were not successful, then we struck on using tiny brass bushes inserted in the fingerboard to which a tiny capo is screwed at the appropriate position.  The guitar now has these bushes at several frets along the first string so that Gordon can experiment with tunings and really let his creative talents flow.
