    Here's the blueprints I used to transfer the mark-up to the wood on a 91.5 Scale Length 24 String Chapman Stick 12 on the front of the neck, 12 on the back of the neck.

    Interesting design!

    Is the player going to play interlocking kotekan patterns with each hand?
    Playing gamelan music on a stick-style instrument?

    I was thinking to play Cool jazz ala Miles Davis and Coltrane on it with a bass ostinato with the left thumb, Chords with the left fingers and improvisation with the right fingers. And also to play Holdsworthian chords and Coltranish melodies.

    I know about kotekan too though. Took a class on ethnomusicology while studying towards a masters in composition while living in Korea.
