Abstract

The concentration on the front wood of the guitar is the main concern for the evolution of modern guitar. It began with the guitar luthier Antonio de Torres Jurado who invented a new fan-strut bracing which enhanced the vibration of the front wood. Following this perspective, the guitar construction has been researched and developed. Until now there are different methods to brace the front wood in order to achieve the sound quality as well as the volume. This article will focus on three major periods that involve with the iconic figures in guitar scene: Francisco Tárrega, Andrès Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams, together with the development of the instrument. The three major periods could be described as the decayed period, the development period and the prosperous period.
