"The lighter string is above the heavier bass string. Its a basic guitar string set, but I matched 6 with 3, 5 with 2 and 4 with 1. I've never tried posting a recording, but maybe I can figure it out and let you hear it."

"Thank you. It sounds very full (kind of mandolin-ish). When electrified with pedals it is a monster. The head stock I wanted to look like horns to go along with the bull of the logo. I'm still thinking about putting a tail on the other end."

Headstock to match theme

"That head stock and the kind of harp look to it is fantastic.  3 double strings.  Tell us about it. What do you call it?  How is it tuned?  How does it play and sound?    Top or bottom of the pic, you should see…"

Build number two

Posted on March 30, 2022 at 1:19pm 4 Comments

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.
