7 strings, 8 strings...nah, 11 strings!

I saw a pic of this monster in a Swedish guitar mag a few years ago. Don't know if you've seen it.

It's a custom made eleven stringed alto guitar tuned in G. With 29 frets and a Floyd... Just think about the time it'll take to get that sucker in tune, let alone change strings!

It looks like a big fat paddle more than anything else, really.

Where they got an 11 string Floyd is what boggles my mind.

Jeremy, maybe you should offer a Floyd on your 8 string Leviathans.
