11-string Guitar “Gitarrone”, made in 2014

After the first prototype from 2012 worked pretty well, the customer decided to order another, slightly modified version of this extraordinary instrument. The number of frets decreased to “only” 27 while the number of strings was raised to 11. The neck to body joint moved to the 12th fret due to the shorter fingerboard.
