    Looks like restringing and tuning is going to be somewhat time consuming. Hope the sound it produces justifies that.

    From the text: "The sympathetic strings are gauged & tensioned to perform the same function as a conventional truss rod, and do a fantastic job of applying reverse pull on the neck to counteract the tension from the primary playing strings."

    I wondered about this when I first saw the pic - veddy clever!
