I've been going over every possibility in my head to try and buy this thing and I just can't scrounge up the money :( I really want one to try and cut my teeth on some cello literature since I can't afford a mandocello

Just take a regular sixer and tune it GDAEBF#. Same principle, but with an extra high string. 1 low note away from having the range of an 8 string guitar in standard!

Also, 5ths tuning provides some really awesome chord shapes and voicings, and scales lay out very effectively and evenly. Plus, no adjusting for a weird-ass m3 string interval.

The reason I like the 5-string idea is I can tune it CGDAE like a five-string cello and play all my old pieces on it.
