Its Possible For The Arm?

Recommended Posts

It can be done. You will have to allow for the height. You can use a thicker fretboard, but probably not going to be quite enough. It is possible to angle the fretboard, again probably a bit odd although it can be done. My choice would be to recess the TOM. The issue with this beyound having to route is going to be getting enough angle down from the TOM to the tailpiece. I have seen Godin models that use a recessed TOM, then they route small channels for the strings to taper down into the body (allowing for downward angle on the strings) then through ferrules. It looks really nice and is very functional. Check this link to see what I am desribing-Godin Jazz.
