Hi everyone, my name is Iván Artesi from Pinamar, Argentina, and i'm glad of having found this page!!!..
At this moment i'm trying, with a friend of mine, to restore a Cucculelli 11 string alto-guitar.
When i've bought it, it came with no tuners and no strings.
I've solved the tuners problem, but i'm not shure about wich strings i should put, specially the low ones.
Can I use the six regular guitar string for the higher part and then 6th string repeted 5 times for the lower part? or should i buy specially made string.
In this case, i would like the know the diameters and the most utilized brands.
Hope hearing news soon!
Thanks for sharing data!
