I'm thinking of building a 'just intonation' guitar. 4-5 string, probably 23-24" shorter scale length CBG. 

Any thoughts, advice, experience, tips will be most helpful.

No takers? I guess I'm way out of my toolbox here.

It makes me want to try it even more.

I am interested in JI from theoretical and building views.

How are you coming with your JI project?

I am interested in the same thing, so if you get any info please keep me posted, please.

Thanks Phil

I have quite a bit information from various books and online sources.
What are you looking for? Theory? Building?
My main interests in general are scales, tuning systems, and building zithers.
