At some point it stops being a guitar and reverts to being a zither, I think. That said, it’s pretty cool.

Carpal Tunnel here we come. Cool sound, and a beautiful look as well.

I honestly couldn’t hear anything that would justify the 14 strings in this particular video - maybe a different composition would bring them to life. The nine string one, though, is amazing.

He’s got a very cool tuning, and it sounds like the tuning is duplicated on the lower and upper registers.

Dying to see the phenomenal Tosin Abasi play the 14-string guitar.
