With 10 strings there are several ways to increase the range. Usually, a 10-String guitar is equipped with four extra bass strings to be tuned down in semitones. However, I also had a client who wanted to have them tuned in thirds.
7th string C, 8th string A, 9th string F, 10th string D.
World-famous guitarist Narciso Yepes also opted for a low C on the 7th string. But he tuned the 8th string slightly higher to an A♯, the 9th string to a G♯ and the 10th string on a F♯.
