#1: Re: FS: Godin Glissentar (eBay)

It's an 11-string nylon fretless guitar made by Godin. The low E string
is not doubled, and all of the other strings (A D G B high E) are
doubled. Great for microtonal music and eastern/Indian music.

I just don't play it much at all, so there is no need to really have
it. I like it, but there are other things I want. The auction listing
is very descriptive.

Hope that information helps.

I hadn't read the listening completely, and yes it is very informative.

Did you use it to play oud music. What did you use it for when you used
it more?

I find it interesting in the respect that it is clearly a clone of the
oud's structure, except that it apparently isn't set-up to be tuned the
same way, right? I know that it is *close* t the stuning of an oud,
but it isn't there. So it seems to straddle two cultures/approaches
neither of which might be fully satisfying.

I know you're trying to sell it, so it's difficult to say what &quot;failed
experiment&quot; it may have respresented. If it cost half the price it
would already be winging it's way to me. Not that it isn't worth twice
the price--Godin has a stellar repurtation for quality. I've wanted an
oud, mostly because I've really been digging Arab and Persian musics of
late, and I'd like to be able to do specific microtonal things that
relate to Vietnamese musics as well. I just can't quite wrap my brain
around what instrument would best suit my purposes. Perhaps this one.
To bad Ibanez doesn't make a cheap knock off... :-)
