Only one, which I replied to. If you don't get a reply, I've not got the e-mail. :(

Very nice! What tuning, (especially the harp strings)?

Well....

Standard tuning on the guitar and A B C# D E F# on the harp side ascending from A=220Hz on the string closest to the fingerboard.

Tim also recommends dropping the 1st string from E to D.

I've tried a few tunings, Drop D, DADGAD, and on the harp strings G A B C D E and the Phygian dominant A Bb C# D E F which works rather well. The whole thing is best tuned to its just self, and is very cross resonant, but of course excellently isolated electrically there being two seperate signal paths.

Still trying to get my brain into two halves, one for the harp and the other for the fingerboard, bit of a challenge but who knows? It may drop into place some day soon. (All other guitars have been quarentined until I get something viable or even recordable.) :wacko:

Awesomness J!!!

Seeing that, and knowing you, I'm seeing two Roland GK pups - that'd be a use for the old VG88 on the harp side... :whistling:

I'd figured you'd be way ahead!

You've got room for a non destructive back mounted sustainer on the harp side too.... :whistling:


Should come with accordianmuffs as standard though... :lol:

My last 17 pairs of accordionmuffs have, sadly, worn out. :( :blush:
