Unique idea-creates open tunings without having to learn new scales or chord shapes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNDihhyCuHI.

Thanks for posting these, guys.  It seems the Gillis requires fretboard drilling/installation so that's a no-go for me.   I've been wanting something like the spider, but that particular one is quite a beast!  I've seen guitarist Phil Volan cut slots into Shubs for various tunings. If there was something like that, but with replaceable rubber pieces so that it can be set each time (and a couple used when needed) that would be ideal.  I should probably just make one myself but I tend to obsess and simple projects consume several weeks once I start geeking out.
