Sword Guitars - 27-23" Microtonal Nine-string in 16-tET
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2012-09-16)
Price : US $ 4500
This is a Custom build multiscale at 27"-23" with Merlin custom 9-string pickups.
This guitar is a tone monster with clarity across all strings unlike any 9-string that I've played. The tension for the high "a" and low "B" and "F#" strings is just right with this fanning. The string spacing is slightly closer and make fast playing easier.
This guitar comes with a scale and theory book, being in 16-tone equal temperament. This tuning and fretting optimizes 7th harmonic, over the 3rd. New classes of musical categories like 'Subminor' 'Supermajor' exist within the tuning, and the system has a number of "neutral" intervals and scales which adapt to world-scales found in Indonesia and Africa, similar to how Greek Modes are adapted in 12-tET.
If you have any questions email me and then we can talk on the phone.
