As you should be, James. It's a real beauty!James Lister wrote:I've always been a bit unsure about the aesthetics of the elevated fingerboard, but in the end I was very pleased with it....
Thanks Erik and Vito!Erik Zurcher wrote:Very nice guitar, James! Will you build guitars with elevated fretboards more often now?
Yes - in the same way the g string needs more compensation at the saddle, it also gives the greatest intonation error at the nut (i.e. between the open string and the 1st fret). It's explained in more detail on Greg Byer's website (click on the "Research" link). I'll probably try it on one of my standard guitars soon, and decide if I think it's worth pursuing.riemsesy wrote:very nice.. liked it on FB already
haven't seen a compensated nut before. it makes the g string shorter?
Thanks! I have already used ports and 20th frets, but so far only at customers requests. As with the elevated fingerboard, I don't think they'll become standard features, but they're all available as options.brooks wrote:a real stunner, James. i'm a fan of the raised FB. ports and a 20th fret can't be far behind!
