I didn't check the notification thing...
Anyway the 8 strings is almost done... tomorrow I'll play it and if everything's ok I'll dismount it to start the sanding stage.
The specs are pretty unique: 34" scale, 32 fret positions, unlined Wengé neck, 19mm spacing at bridge, Padouk neck, American Cherry body with Zebrawood top, 1 single coil (Alnico5 magnes) in a Wengé shell.

The string spacing looks super off at the nut. Some strings seem to be very close and others further apart, or am I trippin'?

EDIT - Just realised it doesn't have a nut, ignore me.

It's fanned. The spacing at both the nut and the bridge will almost always be equal center-to-center of the strings. Parallel frets can get away with proportional spacing at the nut and equal spacing at the bridge. You can have proportional spacing at the nut with a fanned-fret guitar, but you have to keep the same proportions along the line of the bridge, which makes things weirdly spaced at the bridge.

The Ultimate Question: What string gauge is needed for 18.84# of tension when tuned to E2 on a 27" scale guitar?

No, I think he meant at the nut (or lack of nut). Since there's no nut the strings are just lining up with the tuning pegs, which has them at varying distances from each other. My guess is that it WILL have a nut, he just hasn't put it on yet. Might be a zero fret and a string guide, but something will be going there.

^ Hollowway got it. Besides, the bass I'm referring to is in the link Prometeus posted at the top of the page, and isn't a fanned fret instrument.

Yes, it's a single scale (34") bass but in the picture there was NO nut so the strings weren't alligned at all.
