This 8 string was commissioned by Dean Mednick and was designed to be tuned to an open ‘D’ tuning of A, D, A, D, F#, A, D, F# (low to high). This is my G2 model married with the Novax fanned fret system and 2 extra strings. It uses my modified, partial lattice brace pattern.
The guitar has incredible clarity with perfect balance from string to string. A solid fundamental is supported by round, bell like highs and a delicate yet lush over-tone series.
This particular 8 string has a 211/32” nut width and a 31/16” string spread at the bridge.
Depending on tunings, playing style and the desired result, this combination can also be adapted to my G4 model. Scale lengths can also be varied to best support different tunings.
