View Full Version : 1905 Gibson A4

I have a 1905 Gibson A4 that needs a new fretboard. Does anyone know what the fret spacing on that would be, or where I can go to find this out. It's a pretty short neck. Thanks!

Oval holed Gibsons are Gail Hesters; forte. Might try looking her up and asking.

I bought some predotted and fretted fretboards from Cumberland Acoustics, and they "might" be good if the scale length of yours is ..........13 7/8 ? Worth an ask also. Thinking DIY??

Lots of folks on here more knowledgeable than I. But there's a start.

Good luck

If you have you original fretboard measure from the nut to the 12th fret and double it and that is your scale length
