This very easy two-hour conversion, of a $5 "garage-sale special" guitar, creates an instrument that simulates three seperate instruments, totally depending on how it's tuned & how it's played: 1) a 5-string banjo (actually 9-string ---- being doubled) 2) an 8-string (four sets of doubled strings) tenor guitar. 3) a cittern, bazoukey or octave mandolin This conversion has four sets of doubled-up strings, each pair tuned in unison & a single banjo-like "5th string". Not to beat a notice to death, but this video is not for "performance" sake, but rather just to give you an idea of what this instrument's "3-phases" sound like. Full conversion details are on my webpage at this URL: http://www.DennisHavlena.com/3-instru... Real fun to play & a heck of a conversation piece!
