Dan Hehnke's Multi Scale Semi Hollow with Toone/Townsend Beta Hardware

Here's my latest guitar, finished a few months ago. I was fortunate to be planning a headless guitar right when I ran across Rick Toone's site where he was looking for beta testers for his new hardware. I emailed and he was happy to have one "amateur" luthier try it out to get that perspective. It h...

Re: Shortest reasonable scale length for travel guitar?

Cool thanks for all the tips. Yeah I'll do some experimenting as I'm still on the fence as to how short will feel okay.

It seems like from what you said that once you removed the cheapo on board amp/speaker that you actually liked the short scale guitar, and it was a really decent player? Sounds to me like you just didn't like the built in electronics. Clarification would be apprec...

Re: Shortest reasonable scale length for travel guitar?

Well the one I'm looking at is the Peavey Ampkit Link and Ampkit app. It uses the headphone/mic input on the phone to allow you to plug your guitar straight in to the phone.

Shortest reasonable scale length for travel guitar?

Hello new forum! It's been a while since I've posted.
