NorthStar 8-string triple-compound

This is an 8-string ”extended range" guitar with compound scale, compound radius and compound headstock angle. A pretty complex build that is!

Many 8-string guitars with two thicker strings than a normal guitar, have quite long scale length to get a decent response from the thickest strings. In addition to that most makers keep the normal string-to-string distance at the nut, making most extended range guitars so that the left hand need to be extended quite a bit more from the body due to the long necks, and the fingers on the left hand need to be streched quite a bit to reach the bottom strings as the fretboard is quite wide.

With this guitar we have tried to remedy those problems. For startes the guitar has a compound scale (multiscale). The high E has a 25” scale and the low F# has a 26” scale. This makes the higher strings feeling like a normal guitar at the same time as the lowest strings have a snappier responce compared to what a 25” scale would have felt like. However the playing hand doesn't end up quite as far from the body as on a 27” or longer scale guitar, making longer playing sessions easier on the shoulders. The compound scale also relive a bit of the stress on the hands when playing further up on the neck as the wrist can follow a more natural, slightly rotating movement while moving towards the body

To furthermore increase the string responce on the still relative short low strings a custom made string set have been developed together with a maker of exclusive handmade strings. This eliminate the rubbery feeling that short, low tuned strings somtimes can have. In combination with the compound 10-16” radius and the compound scale it makes this guitar extremely comfortable to play. The custom made pickups are a tad hotter than a standard pickup, but have at the same time been designed to produce a clear and defined sound for all playing styles from complex jazz frasings to heavy metal riffing.

In the design process we tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The Spanish Cedar is FCS certified and the maple i north american. The only wood used that is questionable is the ebony fretboard. For this one a striped ebony was used, and from an environmental point of view that is about 10 times better than going for all black fretboards. On top of that a synthetic ivory nut was use. the main material in this nut is casein from cows milk! To further reduce the impact on the environment a wipe on oil finish was used.

The specs:

"The Sable"

This one was ultra low budget. The only new hardware on it is the strings. The bridge was originally a tele/humbucker thing that I cut down, and all of the other hardware is re-purposed. I built the pickups with parts I had on hand. I only had to buy a few small things to complete the guitar. Like most of my stuff, it's not very fancy. There are only three pieces of wood in the entire guitar (oops, 4 if you count the truss rod fillet), but It plays and sounds incredible. Almost everyone's done their version of a Strat. Here's Mine. Plain and simple.

One piece African Mahogany body

Maple neck and fingerboard. Corian nut.

Custom handmade pickups. Calibrated set.

Master Volume/Tone with 8 way switching.

Abalone edge markers

Clear poly over black acrylic.
