Honestly, I think I prefer hearing Leyenda's version of it on 6-string. It sounds more focused and with a better tone. I really wonder if Weiss would be blown away to hear his pieces on 6-string.

Hello Glen,

It looks like a pretty old topic but it's new to me - I can't see clearly from the photos where you tie the 11th string on the bridge.
I can see that the bone saddle is longer and notched but the string must come from somewhere. (The overextending bone nut is an accepted practice among lutenists.)
Does this solution work?
I'm quite interested (as I have a 7-string guitar and a 11-course lute and I'm planning to buy a 10-string guitar), but I'm afraid the quoted site is not available any more.
Your playing is very enjoyable, by the way, those deep basses are what I like about multistring instruments. And Weiss is the greatest for the baroque lute, of course. I tune down mine to low G' or A' and enjoy the low register very much.

Hi again,

OK, I've found Rafael Andia's site at last, but no trace of 10-string guitars and modifications.

Attila,

Alain is the one to ask about how to attach that 11th string device to the guitar. I think at the bridge-end he was able to extend the saddle and put a notch for the 11th string and then run the string under the 10th string where it ties onto the bridge to secure it.

I like how this guy's guitar accommodates 11 strings onto what looks like a 10-string size neck/head. The center string uses a banjo-like tuner. Then you don't need to use a special attachment for the extra string, just attach a small piece of nut to hold the 11th string.

Just heard it with earphones. Sounds promissing.
Can't wait to get home and properly hear those great basses.
