    Hey guys,

    I just finished up a microtonal retrofit on a free neck I stumbled across at my shop. Since it's a maple fretboard, and it's impossible to hide filled fret slots, I opted to keep the existing frets and add a few more. I've fretted this for both the standard 12edo and with 15edo, which share a common 4th, 8th, and 12th frets. I just got it home, so I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet. I may end up hating it, but since it was a free neck I'm not really out anything but time. Check it out:


    Next microtonal neck I do I'm just going to build from scratch. If I dig the xenharmonic thing, I'm probably going to build a 15edo neck without all that 12edo fussiness.
