The quint guitar

The Quint Guitar is tuned five notes up - that makes it the same pitch as hago's alto.

The tuning is B E A D F# B

Like the alto, the quint is short-scale - typically 430mm. Shorter than the alto, quint strings are thicker than the alto.

The quint bass guitar

And underneath, there's the Quint Bass - five notes down (like a baritone), and typically on a 700mm scale neck.

The tuning is A D G C E A

The strings are marginally thicker than a bass's.

Curiously, the tuning is not an octave under the Quint ...see why here
