I'm looking for advice from someone who has strung a six string successfully in this manner. The preference would be to do it with high quality flat wound strings. Something new & different for my arsenal. There seams to be some problems with this set up and even Tyler has suspended production on their 366 model due to incipient problems. I have received some helpful advice and ideas from my friend John Turner and would like to hear from someone who has done this transplant and had the patient live a healthy life. Perhaps the longer scaled Peavey Cirrus 6, Dean Edge Q 6 or an older neck through Yamaha 6 would be a good candidate for the surgery. What about a Cort Curbow strung thusly, will it work??? Obviously I have a budget and would like to build a working F# to G six string for about $1000. Can anyone help me out here?
