    Always nice to see extended range and 7-string in another concept then mindless riffing or chugging.

    Ooo, I just have to add this:

    Desecrated, the video code was cutoff :(

    Also, Robert Conti on a 8:


    Thank you all for watching :wub:

    Also new addition above, Jimmy Bruno on 7.

    (For those too lazy to find it above, YouTube - Jimmy Bruno)

    Phenomonal (though I think he's been posted here before, regardless he's here to stay).

    Edit: Upon comparing the video code, this was actually what Desecrated posted above :lol:, but the code was missing a a character :wub:)

    A bit late, but this is a great post. :)

    Nice to hear these guys, too. A nice break from the Pizzarelli duo I'm used to mentioning whenever someone asks me about jazz on 7+ string guitars. Charlie Hunter rules. Saw him a few years ago in the Knitting Factory in NYC. Cool guy to chat with after shows.

    Have you seen how Michael Copolla's 9-string (The Hydra) is strung:

    Beautiful stuff.

    I love ERGs, I love chord melody (or polyphonic playing as I call it)...

    And Jason Crawford is awesome!!

    Edit - Does anyone know what tuning his guitar has? So far I thought it was a regular 8 string (except for the single coil pickups...weird), but now I see it has 3 bass and 5 guitar strings (guess that would account for the fairly realistic bass sound he has). I haven't seen any normal 8 strings (F#BEADGBE) used in jazz so far - any videos of those?

    I guess this is an epic bump for no apperant reason other that to say: "Thanks for sharing" ! :D I had never heard of Jason Crawford before... Dude is awesome (not that the others were any worse). I loved that... Gotta look for more now.

    This thread is awesome. Here are some more examples.

    Robert Conti tuned to F# standard:







    And here is somebody named Michael Reizenstein, playing his "ninestein" guitar in the first video and a Goodman jazz guitar in the second. He is tuned to all fourths.
