So the description says the widths at the nut, 12th fret and 24th frets are 2.5", 3.5", 3.5"
And on the 9 string Septor it's 2.5", 3 1/8", 3 3/8"

So did Kurt keep the same nut width and just for for slightly narrower string spacing at the nut? It's not an unusual thing to do on an instrument with that many strings. And I don't think it's a typo (like, pasted but not edited from the 9 string description). I think I'll email Kurt...

I think the scale and string spacing is so awkward on an instrument like this, that there's really no benefit, outside using it as a touch style instrument.

I think a large fan would be ideal. Since the board is so wide a larger fan won't feel as cumbersome. A 27" to 32" would be great for those looking to tune extra low and/or make a guitar/bass combo instrument, while 22" to 27" would be great for folks looking to keep in strictly in the guitar-range.

Yeah I have a 3" fan on my OAF 10 string, which has the same nut width. Totally easy. Not even noticeable. That's why I have the next 10 designed with a 5" fan. That being said, since 30" can handle E4 but not A4, this is really a G#0-E4 instrument if standard tuning (i.e. 4ths) is used. But it'll need a pretty beefy G#0 string. Murdstone has this going on his 27-30" OAF now. This would be an ideal tapping instrument, though.

The fun one could have with this.....

I'd put the top 4 or 5 strings in an open tuning so I'd be able to do some easy chording. Bottom 5 or 6 would be in a more traditional 4ths tuning, probably starting at something like C#1 running to A2 so standard riffing is easier to achieve and I could have the BrootlZ.

Is it necessary? Probably not. But more choice is always good

DAT BRIDGE!!!1!! Totally unnecessary for me but I wouldn't say no
This thing could accommodate a 4" fan ( it's like having a 3.2" fan on an 8 ).
On a side note, Kurt accept order for 10 strings Pendulum in the custom shop, think about it guys!
I'm still debating having a 9 string Pendulum made (27"-30") in a few years... Damn GAS!

Interesting, in a faschion..
My 7-string Wolf bass has a 61mm nut spacing. This one has 2½" = 63.5mm, which is only marginally more to grip over.
Which, going with Max' 27"-32" fan idea, would result in an all-in-one bass/guitar.
Without the fan, I wouldn't consider it.

WRT guitar tuning range without a fan, try tuning the lower 4 strings in forth and the rest in major3rd.
I tried something semilar to this on my 8'er, i.e. lower three in 4th+ the rest in m3; works really well, and results partly in a less wide tuning space (with the resulting gauge issues), plus the nicely tightly packed m3 being really cool for fast shredding

(not a fan of the F-word in the title)
