Re: Fanned-Fret 7-string Impulse Buy
The two low strings have the Bartolini pickups to themselves, which you can run on a separate output, or you can flip a switch and blend both bass and guitar pickup outputs. That's titillating enough, though part of me I wishes I could just lay an EMG soapbar slanted right in front of the bridge and get my metal on, but I hope this will push me to be more creative writing counterpoint, etc.
The tuning is something I'll be interested in exploring. The previous owner made it sound like he had it tuned like a normal 7 a whole step down (ADGCFAD), so I'm thinking that I can take advantage of the scale length more and do EADGCEA with the 2 bass strings and five guitar strings.
