Zoran only has two working wood soundboards for now. Both are made from red cedar, but one creates a sound that is more like an acoustic guitar, sonorous and open, while the other mimics a hard-body instrument and the sound of an electric guitar. The soundboards can be replaced in about 15 seconds, with the guitar needing to be retuned each time. At the tapered end of the board, opposite the bridge, there is a chip that plugs into the on-board computer and relays sound signals gathered from each pluck of the instrument.
