8-String Acoustic Guitar
Here's something a bit different. SMD player Eric Clemenzi approached me about doing an 8 string acoustic because there didn't seem to be any in existence. This allowed for the freedom to design it from the ground up. The scale length is increased to 28", while the body depth is increased by a small amount over a normal acoustic. The bracing is a bit stiffer than normal, and the top is left a bit thicker. The result is quite successful, deep but clear sounding. The bridge has a Shadow transducer under the saddle.
