I've been searching for a single neck 11-string ZB for a while. Thanks to Ben Elder I was lucky enough to find this one a few weeks ago. Ser #0669 making it fairly late in production I think.
It was built as an SD-11, not chopped. It has gauged nut rollers and a thin roller axle. Original Sperzle tuners. You can see the original bright green color in the picture. Even the underside was painted green.
Took a while to fix a few things but it's all good now - I love it! Very Happy
It's almost 10lbs lighter than my D-11/10

Eric, that's great! You found your guitar! I recently got my old S10 back from Zirbel. He helped me get it dialed in and I'm really enjoying it.

Henry, that's great you're enjoying the ZB!
I really like the 12 stringer I got from you, but I still haven't gotten used to the narrow spacing, or the extra 2 strings.
When this single neck 11 popped up I jumped on it. I am just really more comfortable with it. I have it setup as an extended E9. Having those bottom strings is fun for rock & roll.

Does the 12-string ZB have narrower string spacing? Whoa!

Well I never actually measured it... Shocked
It just felt too tight (and too many strings!)
Okay, I just measured & compared the 10 & 11 string necks. They are the same from string 1 to 10: 2.5" at the nut & 3.25" at the changer.
The 12 string is the same as those at the nut and 1/8" more narrow than the other two at the changer. Hardly any difference. Embarassed
Sure does feel more crowded though! Ha! Laughing
