"I've chopped a 23" scale fret board to a 20.825" scale for an electric guitar. I just cutted off the first two frets to accommodate the size and scale. The tone is a much darker growl. You would think it would go higher at a short…"
"I only assumed you're a luthier because your name reminds me of PRS' for some reason :) Besides, Paul Craig Guitars does sound like a made company.
Thats some awsome history. Glad you decided to return to building, every man needs a hobby.…"
"Oh thanks for that info about sustain. You must be a luthier right.
