i fretted it that way cos i only had a bit of fret wire and was gonna have a high action to play slide on ,but when i put acostic strings on it it sounded completely different and was bwtter with a medium action . the strings on the video are bajo guitar strings now it has medium acoustic strings on it ,the guitar spaced frets 123,5,7,12 are for a 22.5 scale length,just been antiqueing that baby now used gravy browning and it looks oooooollllllllddddddd
Sorry Roger , I missed your question about the scale. It's 24.5 inches from nut to saddle (I copied that from my other guitars.) The only real mistake I made was using a fret calculator to mark where the frets should be - I think next time I'll fit the strings and then find where the notes should be using a tuner because one or two of the frets are not quite in the right place.
Thanks again Roger. I just use D and A (the A string being a G tuned up a tone.) It's really simple to play and you can play just about anything with a slide. I've been playing guitar for a few years but I just can't stop playing this one.
those tinyguitars look and sound great!!..and an AMAZING price!!...wish I lived in the US, postage, tax etc to the UK would almost double the price : -/ Hope you get on ok with it, would like to see a video of you playing it when you get it : -)...what I was playing was very simple...and slow!!
