The Solar Guitar Telescoping Neck system is designed to allow guitarists to adjust the neck to any position in a wide range of movements. The telescoping neck is made of 3 sections that are held in place by friction alone. The locking mechanism uses a small bolt that is tightened against the lower tube. This bolts pulls up on a collar that presses down on the top section of the tube and holds it firmly in place.
The Solar Guitar Telescoping Neck is designed to accommodate guitarists with a wide range of physical disabilities. The telescoping design allows the neck of the guitar to be extended to the optimum length for each individual player. The feature can also be used by able-bodied players who are looking for a unique performance or recording technique.
The primary benefit of the telescoping neck is the ability to move the neck closer to the body of the guitar, enabling players with limited mobility in their arms and hands to play more easily and comfortably. This also reduces stress on joints and tendons.
Players with muscular dystrophy or other neuromuscular diseases that weaken muscles often have difficulty reaching higher positions on conventional guitars. With the telescoping neck, they can bring those positions closer and within reach. The telescoping neck will also help players who have become disabled after years of playing guitar – such as the case with an injury.
Another significant benefit is that it eliminates left hand stretching for players with short fingers or small hands, allowing them to play more comfortably and increase their speed and dexterity. The largest tone bars on most resonator guitars are designed for people with long fingers and can be difficult for some players to reach, but by moving the neck closer, even these large tone bars become
Guitars are cool, but they are very long. Many people would like to have a guitar, but they don’t have room for it. We propose to solve the problem of length by inventing the telescoping neck. Instead of having a long fixed neck, the neck will telescope out from the body of the guitar when you want to play it, and retract when you’re done. This way you can own a guitar even if you don’t have room for it.
Some people might not like our invention because they think that guitars should be long and unwieldy. We think this attitude is silly, and we hope to prove with our new invention that stupid ideas can be replaced with smart ones.
I love guitar, as a musical instrument and as a design object. It can be very simple or very complex, but always has a sound and look that is truly its own. I’ve been playing guitar since I was in high school, and have always been fascinated with how the instrument works. Whenever I was in a music store, I would always be drawn to the guitars and try to pick them up and play them.
One of my favorite things about guitar is that even though you learn to play on the same instrument, there are so many different ways you can change the sound and look of it to make it your own. When playing guitar, you may not think about how the neck works or why it’s shaped the way it is. The neck is what makes a guitar unique from other instruments, as it allows for freedom of expression through fretting notes along its length.
While working at my first job I had an idea for a new type of guitar neck that could telescope inward towards the body of the guitar in order to make the instrument more compact for travel. At first this idea sounded far-fetched, but after doing some research I found that telescoping necks were actually already being used in banjos! My idea was based on this concept, but improved
I am trying to design a small, portable guitar with a telescoping neck.
The body would be a simple box shape with a cutout and some kind of magnetic pickup. The neck would telescope out of the body and is held in place by rubber washers so it’s frictionless. A fretboard would be attached to the neck and have frets built into it. Essentially you pull the neck out to your desired length (for example, for a normal guitar you pull it out all the way) and push it back in when you’re done playing.
I’m having trouble figuring out how to keep the strings in tune when I’m pushing the neck back in because the strings are going to stretch. Should I just put a normal tuning peg on the body of the guitar? Or should I get some kind of tuner that adjusts all six strings at once?

The telescoping neck allows you to adjust the string height to match your playing style. The strings may be lowered closer to the fingerboard for easy chording, or raised higher for a more forceful lead sound.
The bridge and tailpiece are the same as an electric guitar, so you can use any bridge and tailpiece for this neck.
