Hi everybody, I was curious as to whether any of our guest luthiers did any research and development on their own. If not, where do such advances tend to come from? I know that certain companies, such as Chrysalis, BassLab, Curbow, etc. have used a lot of innovative new ideas in their instruments. Were these discovered mostly by accident, or did they have R&D teams working on such things? If so, does anyone know what the qualifications of a luthierie R&Der are? Thanks in advance!
