  4. What would you tune all the strings to?
    not to be a downer, but generally harp guitars have the harp being the bass notes but if you have the bass notes on the fretboard and bass notes on the harp section, wouldn't that be kinda muddy?

    it would be cool if you just reversed a harp guitar. rather than having the treble on the guitar and bass on the harp, have the bass on the guitar and the treble on the harp(s). and since you have like 3 "harp areas" you could do a lot of trippy stuff as far as tuning goes. i say go for it! make a second one and i'll buy it!
