I was tempted by an SG12 for the alleged piano tunings. What made you (and keeps you) sticking with the SG12 over a normal stick? - The homogeneous "one instrument" sound (rather than the "bass + guitar" sound, which is of cause also cool, but not as perfect for the kind of solo...

Let me chime in with the choir! I was once shopping for a new fretless guitar... and found the Stick instead. Now, six years later, it has changed my life and boosted my music in a magical way.

Cool! This music has a vibe similar to Scandinavian old ethno stuff.

Yes, I have sometimes played around with a capo on my Sticks. Here's a video of an improvisation with the capo on the first fret of the Bass side, covering five of the six strings. I did not change the fifths tuning, extended fifths chords is something I like to do on many instruments. https://youtu...
