There are 6 dampening pads. Each dampening pad can be adjusted to make a small amount of contact with each string. When the fabric comes into contact with the string, it alters the timbre to give it a twangy banjo sound.
Not at the moment. It’s designed for guitars with a flat body, or at least a flat area underneath the strings. We may come out with an accessory that would be a replacement part for the mounting foot which would accommodate more common curved bodied guitars, such as a Les Paul.
On the bottom of the mounting foot is microsuction material. This material has thousands of microscopic air pockets that create partial vacuums between the material and the surface. The great thing about it is that it has a strong hold without leaving any sticky residue.
GUITAR-JO is made from two extraordinarily strong plastics:
(1) The main body is made out of DuPont Delrin (Acetal material family)
(2) The mounting foot is ABS/PC (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene/Polycarbonate material family)
