|10-string guitars have been part of the classical guitar familyâ€™s evolution but have never been conceived in an electric nylonstring chambered body design until now. Jeanfranco Gadotti of Gadotti Guitars has designed the 10-String King Nylon Electric, creating the perfect balance of Old World craftsmanship and New World design. |
The 10-String King is tuned with the first six strings being conventional; the Yepes Tuning for the remaining four strings is C, Bb, A and Gb (7th string to 10th). The guitar can also be tuned in Baroque tuning and alternative tunings available on the web. The King features Sperzel tuning keys and a custom-designed L.R. Baggs Element Active pickup system with two transducers balanced for five strings each. The body is chambered and the neck weight was reduced, creating a comfortable weight at less than six pounds.
