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.

How does the guitar sound like in the extreme low register? C1 (lowest string) seems awfully low for classical guitar. I also commend you for your fine work on the guitar.

Thanks for the complinent. I am still waiting for my specially orders strings. At the moment the 14-string is not strung because I cannot find a string long and thick enough. So far the 11th & 12th string sounds good to me. I think the longer and thicker string should make the 13th and 14th string sounds good. It's a 4 months wait for the strings.
