    What is the radius on most of your 4 string mandos out there? Is there a 'norm' out there? This octave will be 10° to 16° nut to 19th fret.

    Re: Just so excited!!!

    So, with custom work comes a commitment level. The builder did not like the quality of the fret board and has ordered a new piece of ebony. I've seen the 'flaw' and wasn't concerned... he wasn't...

    What is happening is he is making sure everything is flat and level so that he can open up the pick up holes and such before carving the maple top.
