Ergonomics On The Web - Building the Ergonomic Guitar

As you may know, ergonomics is the applied science of adapting work to the physical and mental limitations of the people who perform it. Therefore, it can (and should) be applied to any vocation under the sun ...

... even if you're a rock and roll musician!

Enter Robert Irizarry, blogmaster of the weblog Building the Ergonomic Guitar (http://buildingtheergonomicguitar.com/). After suffering an RSI in his job as an IT professional, he decided to look into ergonomically-friendly guitar designs, as pain from the former injury, as well as back troubles had begun to impede his ability to enjoy his hobby. After conducting some inital research he decided to put the two together, and thus, the quest for the ergonomic guitar began!
