    I'm designing a bass with 26 frets and a 34" scale length, and I can't seem to find the length of the neck (From the nut to the 26th fret) anywhere.

    Could someone point me towards a site with the info I'm looking for, or provide the measurements?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  3. Sorry, the damn columns won't format correctly no matter what I do to them. Just read space to space.

    To get the space from the nut to the last fret, you'll have to add the first column of numbers together. I'd do it for you but I'm not being paid enough as it is :)

    Thanks, Hambone... That was even better than what I was looking for.
