I think you understand. It would require a longer body, 11-3/4" by my calculations, instead of the typical 9-1/2" for most typical sopranos. The width could be a bit less, but not necessarilly since the added area inside the body might be beneficial for the Low G tuning, I already have it drawn on to a woodset, I'm just waiting for the energy to start.I can’t say that I’d miss the higher frets much. I’m wondering if 8 frets to the body would allow the bridge to be suitably placed, but perhaps I misunderstand.
