    Good stuff! Building and setting up this thing must be quite a process.

    Beautiful and impressive! What's the advantage of the twisted neck?

    Also curious if you're using standard tuning. I'm wondering because of the extra-long scale.

    It was a great chalenge to build this thing.
    The tuning is standard BEADG.
    It can be tuned an octave lower than standard 4strings without get muddy sounding,but i dont think i need so low tuning right now.
    Standard BEADG is the most usable tuning for me

    4/4 urb strings ? Even if so, tension must be jacked
    to allow the extra 2 inches ?
