GitMando: just what the name implies - a combination of steel-string acoustic and mandolin. This is a double neck instrument with the steel-string neck on the upper left and the mandolin on the lower right. The individual bridges are floating allowing global intonation adjustments and also house RMC-piezo saddles. The strings of both necks come together in one common tailpiece housed at the end of the body.
Sadari: this instrument combines fretless, frets with equal temperament as well as microtonal frets within one neck. The first two are fretless followed by three coursed strings with frets in the center section and three coursed drones at the bass side of the neck. There is an option for equal temperament for both coursed sections or additional quartertone frets in addition to the equal tempered ones in either of the two coursed sections.
Both the body and neck is hollow yielding a dynamic sound not found elsewhere. Nevertheless the instrument is surprisingly free of feedback problems. Options include a) 31" scale for low tuning similar to baritone guitar or 24" scale high tune and b) piezo or piezo and magnetic pickup.
Sitari: (shown above): Also a double-necked instrument, the lower right neck is a short scale sitar neck housing large curved brass frets which are movable and removable. Unlike the traditional sitar the frets here are fastened with decorative button head screws in place of gut or twine for a much more secure positioning. The second neck starts with the first string fretless followed by three courses of steels within an equal tempered and micro-toned fretting section similar to that of the Turkish Saz followed by three drone strings. Finally, a set of sympathetic strings are also added here complete with a "buzzy bridge." Hollowbody and neck construction throughout. Electronics include a Lace Aluma 90 for the sitar neck, RMC piezo for the second neck and a internal piezo element housed within the body for acoustical reproduction of all string elements throughout.
