Hey man, I'm actually thinking of doing a 30-36" 11 string tuned down to D#0. Based on your experience with the G#0, is that pitch useful? i.e. do you play it? I can use the C#1 on my guitar pretty easily, so I feel good about going to G#0, but I'm curious what you think about going even lower still.
Cool. I'm now thinking about maybe going C#1 to G4, and then dropping everything one whole step, so it's B0 to F3. Then I don't have to sweat the O4P strings. Still gotta deal with the extra high string, so I'm not sure I'll do that.
Yeah, but I'm thinking of putting it on my current 10 because I just don't want to deal with the damn high A! But I was concerned that maybe such a thick string, with the narrow string spacing on this guy, would result in too small of an interstring spacing to be useful.
sorry, can't tell you the price on a public forum, or in private. It's a one off custom guitar and luthiers don't like their prices discussed for customs in public. That just leads to headaches with other customers.
Hi, thanks The 9 string is tuned F# B E A D G B E A. Tension feels good with a .100 on the bottom and a .008 on the top. Doug who owns the guitar is a member of SS and is going to give a NGD when he's back from touring in NZ, so he'll probably cover that. Thanks
