Just finished number two build. It's set up as a three string, but has pairings of bass and treble strings. It sounds very mandolin-ish. Warning: If you do this make sure your have a very stout infrastructure. The tension is amazing.
I used aluminum at first, but it actually bent it. Had to go to 3/32 steel.
How’s it tuned, have you tried tuning it lower to alleviate some pressure?
I tuned to open E. Makes it a natural for blues.
