Tweaking Nuts :: 2010 Alan Carruth 11 String Harp Guitar
This harp guitar belongs to Ken Bonfield and he brought it by the shop when we shot some video demos on the latest builds. Ken is always experimenting with string gauges to find the best tone, tension and feel for his various alternate tunings. He recently upped the gauge on a few of the subs (low-register bass harp strings) so the nuts were sized to improve the tone and tuning of the bigger strings. This thing is a monster and Ken just so happens to have another Alan Carruth harp guitar coming soon. I'm definitely looking forward to checking it out.
