SHEN - Giulio Negrini Guitars

Extended range extreme: SHEN
A fully loaded instrument, up to ten fully usable strings allow limitless phrasing, both in the guitar and bass ranges (for the X model: Low C#1 .105" to high A5 .009").
Custom shaped headless design, outstanding reach of the higher frets with a smooth neck joint, multiscaled to reach an impressive balanced frequency response, tight low strings with singing smooth treble.
The precise center of gravity, ergonomic multiscale fretting, hi-grade Italian hardware and special neck profile bring the player to fast and clean performances.
A wide variety of tonewood combinations available, to perfectly tune and match the combination that fits best for every single musician, with his own needs and personal tone-research.
The shape is designed to allow playing the guitar in different positions; standing, sitting, and can be kept like a cello player does with his instrument, with the neck closer to the body to reach all the full range of the fretboard with ergonomic adaptability.
