that whenfit is turned the lower end of the heel plate will be adjusted closer to or fartheraway from the instrument, asdesired. l't'will thusy be seen that with the various parts constructed and properly adjustedv as above described, the strain caused by the tautness oi4l the strings 7 will be taken up entirely by the parts'9, 21, 18, 16, l2, 13, 22, 14 and 5, leaving the sound box or body of the instrument free to vibrate as it properly should do.
it is of course understood that the invention as here disclosed is purely illustrative.
and is not to be taken in a limiting sense. Suitable modifications lmay be made, provided, however, that suoli modiiications come within the spirit and scope of the appended claims. Having' now. therefore fully shown and described my invention whatl claim to be new and desire to protect by United States Letters Patent is:
1.The combination with a stringed instrument having a hollow sound box and a neck piece secured thereon, of a heel plate at the butt end `of the instrument, strings positioned over the face of the instrument and means ior securing' them to the heel plate, a hollow brace extending longitudinally within the sound box, a rod within the brace, said rod being secured at one end in the neck piece and having its other end terminating in the heel plate,fan angular brace bracing the heel plate against the first mentioned brace whereby the plate will be spaced Afrom the sound box.
2. The combination with a stringed instruinent having a p a neckpiece secured thereon, of a heel plate at the `butt end of the instrument, strings positioned over the face of the instrument and ineansy for securing them to the heel plate, a hollowbrace extending longitudinally within the sound box, a rod within the brace, said rod being secured at one end in the neck piece and having its/other end hollow" sound box and plate, a hell brace hai-ring a no'teh in its rear part extending longitudinally within the sound box, a rod Within the brace, said rod being secured at one endl in the neck piece and at its other end in the heel plate, an angular brace exteiulinethrough the butt end of the sound hoi; sain angular brace and said engaging` the heel plate at one end brace noteh with the other end.
Ll.
