Sweet Prat 11 String

Garry Goodman posted these pictures to the O4P facebook page. I'm a total sucker for basses/guitars where the upper horn overlaps the fretboard.





Also, unless my eyes are playing tricks, the spacing of the bridge pieces increases as the strings get thicker. I assume this is to maintain a constant string spacing despite the increasing size of the strings.

Jeebus. That thing is huge. I can only really see that as a touchstyle instrument, but hey, to each their own.

Got a question regarding string gauges for a certain tuning? PM me, I can help!

Are those the .Strandberg* bass bridge pieces?

EDIT: Nope, it actually doesn't appear so on closer inspection.

Chrome ABM Headless bass bridge tuners.

Wonder why the builder opted to leave such string length behind the nut until' they reach the headless saddles?

From the name i assume it is a shortscale ERB, that would explain why it looks so wide and why the body looks so big and reaches to the 9th fret. It will be at NAMM. The wide flat back of the neck is delicious

Yes, the string spacing is 16mm side to side of the strings. So center tcenter have no regular spacing. I think this is the most natural feeling for big ERB's.

Seriously, at what point does it no longer make sense to call something a "bass"? This thing looks like it goes well up into guitar range, if not even higher, regardless of how low it also goes.

I have a problem cn this mod ke the eicoli and the infantry cn a blow dies what can make?

excused for the errors but are Italian

Well, In my mind, with extended range guitars and bass, the design decides if it is a bass or guitar. In this case, there is a bass string spacing, bass pickups and a bass scale length. On my upcoming ten string guitar, I have guitar pickups, a guitar(ish) scale length and guitar string spacing.

The lines can definitely blur so I just go with what the intended use and general design seems to favor.
