Post I think Im Confused now
I assumed SG12 was for guitar players but it seems that the alto and the sg 12 are similar almost in length and tunings but altos only come in 10 and SG12 come in 12 string. Is that a safe assumtion or are they very different? Could an SG 12 be called a 12 string alto? i like the idea and sound of the higher strings thats why I was leaning towards an alto but now that Ive some people respond about an SG12 Im a bit confused.


Ideas and thoughts of course are always welcome.

The SG12 is to the Alto what the Grand Stick is to The Stick.... the SG12 and the Grand are the same width, and the Alto and the Stick are the same width.

The Alto and the SG-12 are the same scale length and the the Stick and the Grand Stick are the same scale length.

Don't forget the Alto Stick, our smallest and most underestimated model. Original Stick philosophy (yes they come with an "ethic"): Maximum music from minimum means.

I played this song by John McLaughlin on the first Alto Stick in 2004:

Thanks to brother Dan for the very personal video portrait.

Don Schiff and Glenn Poorman are on the page as well - all styles conceivable.

I'm thinking I might also... an SG12 would be a great addition to what I already do, except I could get some really high notes in there...

Altos are great...I find them sonically inspirational with a fantastic 10-string feel. Vid from the '16 VA stick night, rec by Greg...
