I just finished re-reading "Super-Trebles to Infinity and Beyond" and "The Expanded Harp Guitar" found in the articles section of this site. I have been ruminating on super trebles of late. What is the super-treble tuning of the above guitar?

Sorry Michael but I doubt there will be a standard tuning. Pino just got the instrument back from its transformation and is working things out. He has a degree in classical and played baroque on a 10 string for years so I’m sure he had some idea of what he was going for when he had the trebles added. However, he’s now a fingerstyle player and as such there are no rules and he may be change the tuning for each piece he plays.

Check him out on Candyrat or YouTube. He also plays in the group, Guitar Republic. Love their version of Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Thanks for the heads up, Stephen!  I had not yet heard Pino.  Quite creative and talented.

We first met Pino at the Canadian Guitar Festival about 9 years ago. Linda, my Noble and I spent an afternoon with Pino and Stefania about a year after getting the harp guitar. Pino has a thing about new instruments. He really loves his old guitars but found my Noble to be exceptionally warm and open for being so new. Within minutes he seemed totally at ease with it and couldn’t/wouldn’t put it down. I thought he really got into it and would have bought himself a vintage Knutsen or Dyer years ago.
