Well heres a new one on me, but imagine the possibilitys!
Fretboard convertable from Diatonic to Chromatic? Removeable Micro tonal inserts? Maybe even fretted to fretless? (Maybe not, might work!)
How about a Diatonic convertable from pure diatonic to modified with 1 1/2 and/or 6 1/2 frets? Hmmm......
Alright guys, it may not have any practical use, I dont know. Just thought I'd throw it out there as it intrigued me.
First, Richard, I didnt intend it as a Dulcimer only idea.
John, you may be right, I just thought I would add it as an idea for experimental builders. This is after all supposed to be where the "freaks hang out" right?
Oily, I dont know what to say, that idea just floors me. How about a roll of .009 for use in all positions? No wait, I have it!!!! Tapered strings!
Seriously though, what if you could install the channel as a nut/first fret and have the height options to easily swap out for low action or slide action? Maybe?
I just found it interesting and had never seen it before.
