    i'm building a bass and i was considering making an eight-string (strings doubled), then a five, then a ten (again, strings doubled). i could just make it ten and use that as a start for whatever number i may want, but before i did that, i wanted to know if anybody was doing basses set up for various string arrangments, ala dulcimers. i had no search results, so forgive me if this has already been asked. can anybody give me any info on variable bridges, nuts, etc.?
     
  2. might wanna try re-posting this in the Luthier's corner, or do a search there.. :)
