7 String, Wide Range Stereo Guitar

This guitar has heavy gauge low strings and light gauge high strings; fingerstyle picking can produce lead riffs as well as basslines due to the wide pitch range.
Two single coil pickups with missing pole pieces divide the lower and higher strings for stereo amplification and effects.
Double strings for highest course create phasing effect when bending, and the tailed bridge tuned to 1:4 harmonic can be played for effects.

This design is based on a guitar modification by Jesse Hall from Experimental Dental School.
