I realize the 7 and 8-string guitars aren't a new concept. Lutes, ouds, and all sorts of ancient and/or eclectic instruments have been around for ever. look! here's one now...





--------------------
Carvin 6 string bass (walnut neck and body w/burl maple top)
Carvin 5 string AE fretless bass(mahogany neck and body w/ quilt maple top)
Dean 8 string bass
Danelectro BassVI
Washburn 5 string acoustic bass
Hartke HA3500 w/ 4-10x1-15
BBE Sonic Maximizer
Zoom B9.1ut / Crybaby
Monster cables

Cool instrument yeah but I wouldn't call it a guitar though smile.gif Notice all the other strings are pre-tuned for the song, its like tuning your guitar to Fmaj (which is a blues thing I recall) and every strum sounds good biggrin.gif

Some guys can be pretty inventive with no frets ... and a mixture.

I remember being really intrigued and yet baffled when I first saw that "guitar" like 10 years ago. I think it has a string or two too many for me though.
