    I have had those kinds of thoughts myself.

    Best of both worlds! Enjoy!

    Oh cool, I thought it was gonna be a joke about a guitar

    Other instruments: way too many, and yet, not nearly enough.

    Back in the late 80s for about 5mins Alvarez made a 9 string guitar. Totally melted my butter. Likewise Martin made (may still be making) a Roger McGuinn model guitar with 7 strings (the 7th being an octave on the G string). Very intriguing.

    Seems a natural idea to combine double strung courses and single strung courses in an emando. Even on my Arrow (15" scale) the e sting is too tight to bend much. Might as well think about doubling it!

    Show us some photos!

    (I play country, folk, and rock too, these days. Have not been brave enough to perform Blues.)
