    I wouldn't know wether to try and play it or slice cheese with it. On second thought, the cheese thing might get kind of messy..

    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...

    Needs a fan. Would totally be worth the extra cash for a 3".

    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 you could easily get away with fans like that on such a wide board.

    I knew they offered this as a semi custom option, but I've never seen pics.... Damn.

    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.

    It's an Agile, there's no guarantee the frets have been crowned. :lol:

    I really hope someone geographically close to me buys one of these.

    Playing it sounds fun, but I feel overwhelmed by my Agile 830 at times.

    There's actually only one for sale. If this gets bought there will be more, but if not Kurt won't likely make additional ones.

    My 8 is already too much for me, but I still kind of want this.
