    1. 1. Patent search ILP assignment 3Professor Harkins. By Sean McGary
    2. 2. The 7 String guitarI chose to search the 7 string guitarbecause it is relatively new addition tothe guitar family. 6 and 12 stringguitars have been around for a longtime, so I thought it would beinteresting to find more out about this.
    3. 3. The first result
    4. 4. The first resultWhat I saw was utility and designpatents.The first page actually showed thedrawing for a seven string guitar.Other pages showed parts andaccessories.
    5. 5. Page 2
    6. 6. Page 2
    7. 7. Page 2The results I found on this page werevery vague. It was a list of people whofiled for patents, but there was notspecific information regarding theactual patents.This page was not very useful towardmy invention.
    8. 8. Page 3 resultsThis search did not yield very goodresults.It showed one patent that was actuallya guitar pick.
    9. 9. Page 4 resultsThis page yielded very uselessinformation as well.One of the pages was for a guitar standwhich was not useful for my invention.
    10. 10. Page 5 results
    11. 11. Page 5 resultsAgain, I had very luck with the resultspertaining to my invention.One page I pulled up was a generatorand had nothing to do with myinvention.Overall The initial search showedsome design and utility patents relatedto the guitar. But not to a specific 7
    12. 12. Google vs. USPTOI have to say that the initial googlesearch was far more useful in regardsto my invention.There were very specific results whichdetailed patent drawings and specifictrade secrets.
