Re: measuring scale ?

Thanks Mark.
Keep that thought and now for the correct placement of the bridge I will measure from the 12 fret to to the front slot of the bridge + .10" of an inch and the measurement will be at the front slot of High E?

measuring scale ?

When measuring scale on a 24.9"
Do you measure from the front edge of the nut to the 12 fret or do you measure from the center of the nut?
Thanks Dave

Re: Hello to all question about double neck electrics

Thanks, Mattia. I checked out some of the sites to purchase all the parts and found that the prices are all over the place.
The site that offers the plans "Warmoth" looks interesting. I will contact them and see what they have.
does any one know what the scale would be?
Thanks Dave
