Zoran has fabricated other experimental soundboards. One has metal screws in it and Zoran said that when the screw placement is changed, the sound will as well. One soundboard is hollow with a rubber stopper, allowing it to be filled with water or oil, which will create different acoustic properties. Yet another soundboard is made from the wood of a 150-year-old bridge in Vermont. Making an entire guitar from the aged wood would be near impossible if not prohibitively expensive, but because the soundboard is small the project was manageable.
