    A bit off topic. 2011 video, an intreresting builder and nice sounding 4 string played well.

    But it looks like I've succeeded in extending it with a piece of 1 mm Dyneema string. It's been tuned to E5 now for 12 hours and still holding on. My first attempt slipped through the knot though. So this is a double fishermans knot with the end secured.
    Just a quick update, All strings are holding up, including the "tied up" string.
