Well, sort of. Leaving aside the arguments about whether string spacing at the nut should be equal 'between strings' or 'between centres', how much space do you leave between the outside of the string and the edge of the fretboard? Second question, do you keep this distance constant all the way up the board or does it get progressively bigger? I know that on guitars the top and bottom strings tend to get further away from the edge as you go up the f'board. What about basses?
