"Taff, I’m able to click on the links using an iPhone & iPad, not sure what you’re using? However, here’s that pic, which is not a bolt, but looks a high for a canjo? I build my Canjo’s with a flat screw for a nut like…"

"Hi, Sorry declan, i thought it hard to understand. Let me try this. At the start of the fingerboard [peghead] the nut would sit flush to that end of the board [the start of the scale length]. Call this the leaving point for the string from the…"

"Thanks All, I'll have a look again tonight. Based on your input I guess the string is too high .. is there a recommended height over the frets ? 3 mm ? I will have o punch a new hole in the can too as the 'bridge' position is…"

"Hi, as I mentioned I cant see the photo, but, if you did use a round bolt and you did not shorten the distance from the first fret to the end of the fingerboard, the scale length would be wrong. The distance from the end of the fingerboard to the…"

"so, the screw eye is the nut? Then, yes, if your 1st note is sharp, then the string is sitting too high at the nut? About level frets, if you don’t want buzzing & sharp notes, then you’ll want to level them?"

"Start by confirming that your scale length is correct for the fret spacing you used. Measure from the point of contact between the string and "nut" and the point of contact with the bridge. If that's what you intended, then start…"

"Hi I cant bring up the photo, is your nut in the correct position? Does the string leave the nut from the correct position? Are the notes true at the twelfth fret?  Taff."

"If it’s sharp, then the nut or the fret in front of the sharp note is high. "

"Hi Brian,  Thanks for the reply. From your answer I presume I should get a D at fret 1 , E at fret 2 etc The frets may not be exactly level but there's lots of clearance. I've added a couple of photos for open tuning and on the 1st…"

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( officialaishacbd@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
