    Are you sure it's not refering to an open string, in the tabulature sense.

    Yeah, it's a pretty cool idea. Being that I'm lazy, and I like things to be simple (cause, hey, the less I gotta mess with, the less likely I am to screw something up), and I think this might be one more variable to work around in having an instrument set up.

    Long as you don't worry about that end of the instrument with regard to changing string height, I imagine it wouldn't be a problem, though.

    You know, you should get friendly with the search function. This topic's been done to death.

    I've given up on people using the search function.
     
  8. Listen to BB.

    In the basses forum several months back i created a big thread about zero-frets. All questions are awnsered there.

    the problem with searching such a massive site is that, in searching, they will inevitably find a dozen more threads where people posed the question and were simply told to do a search! :p

    Asked and answered, do a search! I would move the thread to the proper forum, but since its been done to death I'll just close it.
