I can't say I've ever seen a 30-string guitar before. I like the compensation on the saddle on the right.

Is that the most strings ever put on a guitar? Alistair is making a statement about carbon?

Respectfully, a single picture is not enough for me. It just makes me want to see more, then hear it. Then try it!

When I first saw this, I focused mainly on the 18-string. Looks like a standard 12-string configuration, with three lower double courses added.

I just noticed that the 12-string appears to be a double 6-string; each course looks like it consists of two identical strings. Furthermore, the top three courses are unwound.

I am very curious to find out exactly how this is strung and how the owner intends to use it.

Default misaligned ?

OK, this is coincidence!

I just got back from lunch, which I spent at an excellent local music store browsing the guitars. One of the ones I played was a Seagull SW2 12 string, solid cedar top, laminated body.

It was fine but I noticed that the bridge pins seemed out of alignment. The second row of strings detoured around the front row of bridge pins.

Look at this posted photo, on the 18-string bridge. The lowest bass string wraps around its treble string's bridge pin.

The Seagull I looked at had the same issue but with all 6 strings in the back row and about twice as prominent as in the above photo.

My Yamaha 12 string is nicely laid out, the rear bridge pins are staggered between the front bridge pins (and the neck feels narrower too).

Interesting you are right that is not a normal 12 all duplicates? Anyone ever seen this before.

Looks like the 12 might be just very light gauge strings, doubled on all. I would love to see how the new owner plays this thing.

This doubling may be to try to increase volume of the "6" neck to balance what has to be a booming 18 string side?
