"It’s almost like you. Guys sorta now what you’re talking about  : ) I cut the bridge down and got the string hight to right at 6/64 on low string, angled the bridge and checked the intonation and it’s good.  It frets…"

"Nice looking Guitar and good wood burning, way better than my first attempt. I do not want to hijack this discussion, but what thickness is best for fretboards, I managed to get some scarp timber/ off cuts a while back which was about 5mm thick, and…"

"It may be OK for slide, but for fretting/chording it should be OK around 7/64" for the bass string and down to 5/64", then a little lower for the treble strings, around 5/64". Better to start higher and then go lower depending on your…"

"Yeah, got a lot to figure out. I knew this would be a learning curve build. Being that this is the first one I’ve had my hands on I’m not sure what I’m looking for as far as what’s best for playability. I’ve got to…"

"That is a great looking first build Troy, nice job! It's a matter of taste but for me it would be too low at the nut and too high at the bridge end. You'll have to figure out what works for you."

"your 3rd pic looks ok for string height, but measurement tells all, measure at the 12th to see what you have, string break looks good, not thrilled with the one tuner string being overlapped, you don't need more than 3 wraps and string…"
