Hello, all! I ordered a "Touch style guitar" from a company called Krappy guitars less than a week ago (The owner has a sense of humor laugh.gif) . I had a lesson on one of these instruments, and I was inspired enough to buy one for myself! Thought I'd share for anyone who has ever wanted the quality of a Chapman Stick, but felt it was a bit of a stretch for the ol' wallet wink.gif.

He's sent me three pictures so far... I was not expecting him to be working this quickly. The man I had a lesson from said it would take about 4 months to make it... Again, it hasn't even been a week yet. smile.gif

Restringing that monster will surely be a "Krappy" experience.

Thanks guys! I plan on having no clue what do do with it once I recieve it. Maybe, If I get good enough I'll make a lesson (for those few brave soldiers who play sticks). Speaking of which... Does anyone know a good lesson site for sticks I can start with?

Amazing (from hearing it in person). I don't even know yet! I plan on trying multiple styles and seeing what I like to play the most. I may like to play a completely different style from what I normally play on guitar. I'll probably start with some jazz. I don't expect to shred on this thing anytime soon laugh.gif .

Thank Ivan! I believe mine may be tuned like this (bass in 4ths). http://www.stick.com/instruments/tunings/12/classic_b4/

I'm embarrassed to say I'm not completely sure (string names, etc.)

Re-stringing it will certainly be a royal P.I.T.A.! I barely get by stringing my guitar! I also have to order strings from online as replacements. I am looking forward to playing it for the first time biggrin.gif, but not looking forward to breaking a string for the first time sad.gif.
