Re: Interesting thought---Guitar tuned to a CBOM
I have a friend with a gorgeous Rickenbacker 360/12 electric 12-strng guitar. He is very unhappy that the neck is so very narrow. (I have reminded him that it played alright for me... ) Anyway, I got to thinking about restringing such a beast to an extended-range electric cittern. Maybe string it up CGDAEB (although that B string would be either mighty tight or ridiculously thin. Kinda dangerous, I'd think.) Or maybe New Standard Tuning CGDAEG would work. In any case, I'd want to figure out the tensions and string sizes before trying it out on a nice guitar. Has anyone tried this? How might I work out a custom string set to try it?
Think globally, bike locally.
