I wasn't clear on this one. I meant that I have a difference in stringlength between the trebleside and the bassside of about 4" (30.6 - 25.7).Andrew Berry wrote:This is at the bridge?I have a span of 4" between my two stringlengths and for me it works fine
You can choose how you want to fan your frets. I've again used the golden ratio. So the treble side of the zero fret is shifted 4/1.618" to the right (see the drawing at the top of the thread).
One thing to keep in mind is that the stringlength you use for the trebleside isn't the same for your high b string. Your b string will be somewhat longer, because it is a little bit off the side.
This can be critical with this high pitched string.
I've did some testing on a 24" scale, but I moved quickly to another tuning options (at first a regular high E and later on to the F#).
