One way to play 58-edo on a 14.5-edo guitar is to tune each pair of adjacent strings 15\58 apart. That's about 310.3 cents, or 5.3 cents flat of 6:5.

Where the first primes intervals lie

Where the harmonics lie in the 15\58 x 4\58 isomorphic layout

The diagram below (or at right, or somewhere) is of a hypothetical 12-string guitar in this tuning. It shows where each of the odd harmonics through the 29th lies. 1 represents octave equivalents of the root (1/2, 1, 2, 4 ...), 3 represents octave equivalents of the 3rd harmonic (3:2, 3:1, 3:4 ...), etc.

Since 58-edo is consistent in the 17-limit plus 29 group, the positions of the harmonics in that group imply how to play every interval in it. For instance, the interval 10:7 lies two strings up on the same fret, because that will take you from harmonic 7 to harmonic 5.
