Finally! I managed to put on the strings on the 14-string. Still need some fine adjustment. Overall I am extremely happy at the result. This guitar has very loud and powerful treble. See how the sound settle down in the next few days. Still need some work finding the right string especially on the sub-basses. Any help will be useful.

Oh dear!!!! I am already making plans for a 15-string guitar.

Very nice-looking instrument. I was trying to read what that music is on the stand next to it. Kudos for having the skill necessary to make a guitar like that.
