Internal Resonance System
"It's Like An Instrument Within An Instrument"
For Electric Guitars and Stringed Instruments
The patented Internal Resonance System is currently
and exclusively built into the custom-hand-made electric Burly Guitars,
as seen above. However the Internal Resonance System can be produced
on a mass scale with a variety of guitar makes and models,
as well as a variety of stringed instruments.
The Problem To Be Solved:

The sound of notes, or tones, played by an instrument, is the criteria that determines whether it is a high quality instrument.

Stringed musical instruments such as guitars have strings, which when plucked, create sound through vibration and resonance. Pressing the strings against the upper fretted neck of the guitar, changes the frequency of the plucked strings, thus creating different notes.

Today's guitars are either acoustic using mechanical amplification, or electric using electronic amplification, or some combination of both. With traditional acoustic guitars, the vibrations of the plucked strings, are shaped and projected into tones by the soundboard and the resonating chamber.

With electric guitars, the vibrations of the plucked strings are converted to electronic signals by pickups (transducers) and routed to an amplifier before they are projected out of speakers. Electric guitars with a hollow body like those in acoustic guitars, usually experience feedback problems and uncontrolled resonance due to the electronically amplified sound waves. Thus, solid-body electric guitars have been developed as one of the ways to control the feedback problems.

Yet while an advantage of a solid-body electric guitar is that a vibrating string can sustain its vibration for a longer period of time, a major disadvantage is that the sound produced generally lacks the resonant complexity of a hollow-body guitar.

A variety of hybrid electric guitars have been developed which have a semi-hollow guitar body with the ability to produce resonant tones that are more characteristic of hollow-body guitars, while limiting feedback problems. Yet there has been a need in the marketplace for the ideal electric guitar that can hold notes longer, produce the highest quality resonance, and minimize feedback.

Internal Resonance System
"It's Like An Instrument Within An Instrument"
For Electric Guitars and Stringed Instruments

The Internal Resonance System is a specially designed core structure for a semi-hollow guitar body that optimizes resonant characteristics, provides improved capability to sustain notes, and minimizes susceptibility to feedback while achieving a distinct high quality guitar sound.

The Internal Resonance System utilizes tuning forks machined into the central core. These forks recirculate the vibrations back into the strings, greatly increasing the resonance quality and note sustaining ability, which can be felt by the musician from the very first note.

Jeffrey Ayers, the product developer, is a master wood craftsman who is the owner of Burly Guitars. Each Burly guitar is built by hand, made of the highest quality woods and materials, with each piece shaped to the customer's specifications and carved with any design or logo. Currently, the patented Internal Resonance System is exclusively built into the Burly Guitars.

The patented Internal Resonance System can be produced on a mass scale with a variety of guitar makes and models, as well as a variety of stringed instruments. For example, it can be adapted for acoustic guitars, violins, mandalins, bass, cell, banjo and ukuleles. It can be cast in carbon-fiber or other polymer based compounds, which is the new wave in guitar construction.


Internal Resonance System is adaptable to a variety of stringed instruments.
