Hi Richey!

Did you ever post to further explain your advice for equal string tension?

I'm doing my first 4 string, how do you set yours up? 

Best! -Danny

Thanks to you Richey. I like your multi-scale guitar. Want to build one. I'll send you pics, now i'm looking for woods and thinking the scale to use.

Hey Richey,  Thanks for the reply and concern.  Please dismiss the crudeness of the videography (or lack thereof) from me and my camera phone, but this video best explains everything... https://youtu.be/GuxwrfyG_NE

Wine expert eh! So you know lots about my other pastime

At 6:36am on June 6, 2015, Michael Fred Johnson said…

Toes are all in tact.As I said before that Lyre like shape just seems so logical for three strings,though my later ones seem to be getting longer and skinnier.

The standard of that build has made me wonder about your background,using craft skills in some away for your living ?

At 7:14am on June 5, 2015, Michael Fred Johnson said…

Just had a look at your photo's Richey.That is a flawless build,simple and beautifully done

If I don't have a router !!!I've got two !! I'm one of those boring old farts with a compulsive tool buying disorder

At 7:06am on June 4, 2015, Michael Fred Johnson said…

Thanks again Richey,sort of have a hankering to do a solid myself,guess what shape?As for the headstock design,there ain't no patent and I'm sure somebody somewhere must have done it before,it just seems a logical shape for a three string

At 10:35am on May 25, 2015, Michael Fred Johnson said…

thanks Richey,I think you will overtake soon,you're at 30 quicker than I was
