wolfcoast Posted February 19, 2007 Report Share Posted February 19, 2007 This is very simple but wanted to put it up for those that may not have thought of it. I didn't want to pay a large price for the StewMac Straightedge that has fret notches so here's what I did. I already had the template for fret slot cuttings from stew mac so I laid it on an extra 18" straightedge I had sitting about and marked the notches on the straightedge with a Permanent marker. After that, I simply took a file and filed notches on each mark that were deep enough to go over frets. Voila, straight edge that can be used on a fretted board. I only did the 25.5 scale as that's what I mostly use, but you can use any of the fretboard templates to notche both sides of a straight edge for use on other scale lengths. Hope that helps somebody.
