I’m having a small travel guitar built up for me by Steve Chipman at vintageparlorguitars.com
the rebuild will be on a 1960’s harmony 00 12 fret spruce top maple back and sides, but will be spec’d towards the Gypsy guitars a bit
so far I’m thinking floating bridge/tailpiece, ladder bracing, shallow/medium D neck profile, 25-25.5 scale length, 1 3/4 “ nut, rosewood fretboard with marker at 10th fret instead of 9th, 16-20” radius on fretboard,
I am unclear what would be a good string spacing though. I’d like it to be consistent with my Zwinakis. Also unclear about the fretboard radius. I came across a thread here which gave 16-20” as a good range?
would appreciate a little feedback and perhaps some other suggestions if I’m missing something.
