    oh man, thanks JC, oh and i tried the stewmac one, it just gives you the one in inches, but it tells you its in mm, so your fret board with end up being 25mm long

    No problem. The StewMac one works if you convert 34" to 863.6 mm yourself and type that in.
     
  7. Take inches and multiply by 25.4 to get millimeters.
