This paper presents a new approach for designing acoustic guitars, making use of the virtual environment. The physical connection between users and their instruments is preserved, while offering innovative sound design. This paper will discuss two projects, reAcoustic eGuitar, the concept of a digitally fabricated instrument to design acoustic sounds, and A Physical Resonator For a Virtual Guitar, a vision in which the guitar can also preserve the unique tune of an instrument made from wood.
