Honestly, I'm not impressed. You'd think that a guy like Pat Methany could do more than that on so many strings. The "Guitar" part is opened tuned so, everything he plays there is pretty well on key. He's just strumming the top guitar thingy. It's purely rhythmical at this point. He may as well be playing a triangle.

The sound quality of this video is awful. I've heard Pat play this more than a few times live and it sounds incredible. This is a poor choice of video.

Knowing how expensive Manzer's guitars are I can only cringe at how much she would charge to build one today!! Maybe one could pay for one string a month for 4 years? :-)

Amazing instrument. She does make wonderful guitars.

Makes my stomach hurt and make bubbling noises!Lmao I have enough problems with 6 strings! These 7,8 and 9 strings are too much.

Very impressive but was it really worth it? 10/10 for effort and novelty factor tho!
