SenjuYzu Posted October 13, 2014 Report Share Posted October 13, 2014 Hi. I have a design in the works for an 8 string multiscale guitar and lots of questions. I think I'll keep posting them here as they come around. Some are multiscale guitar related, others are generally for guitar building... So, question #1: How to measure scale lengths on a multiscale guitar? Parallel to neck axis or parallel to strings? I know the difference will be minimum, but this is a bug in my central processing. Question #2: How to decide where the perpendicular fret will be? Lets say for a 25.5 - 27 fan as an example... Question #3: How to choose the truss rod's length for this kind of fans? Is ther a rule off thumb for scale length versus truss rod's one? 2 truss rods, one alone or one reinforced with graphite (or other material?) bars...
