Tossing around ideas for a Tenor build. One thing that has me a little puzzled in these early stages is fret spacing. Do Tenors have the same fret spacing as a regular guitar neck? I thought they did then I saw a video that suggestion otherwise. Thanks.

I'd suggest to use the Stewmac Fret Calculator. This is the best tool around.

The scale length may vary between 21 and 23 inches. 

I use the C P Getty 23" guide .
