Disclaimer: This thread is about clearing some ideas I've been having about multiscale designs. Please don't take this to seriously, the purpose is just to test them, pros and cons and the stuff. I am not thinking in building no guitar in the near future, but I like the exercise of designing and that is enough for me, for now. ::::::::: Question #1: When designing a multiscale guitar, most speak of the position of the perpendicular fret and its importance to overall playing ergonomics. What if there is no perpendicular fret? Meaning that the perpendicular line is between frets? As I see, there is no problem whatsoever, instead of having it at fret #9, let's have it at #9.5, meaning that fret#9 is tilt towards the nut and #10 the bridge. I see no problem, what say you? Question #2: This is a rhetorical one regarding neck/scale axis and may also apply to single scale designs. So, the scale/neck axis is always centered, from which the strings span away symmetrically. What if the treble string was aligned with the axis and all the others spanned away from it? Or the opposite, the bass string aligned? I speculate that the previous could be beneficial to soloing up high and the later more to riffing on the lower notes, however, this would have significant impact in full bridge systems (versus single string systems) and in pickup positioning for pole alignment. I think it would be impractical and this idea is just stupid, but here it is open for discussion. Question #3: Where should one measure the multiscale range: parallel to treble and bass strings or to the axis? Difference is minimal and irrelevant for the overall design, but for rigor sake... where should one do the measurements? ::::::::: Last notes on this thread. Please feel free to post your own questions, may you think of them as stupid (like #2 here) or not and to extend this thread for other problems related to multiscale design: calculating string span/spacing, methods for doing the design without resourcing to Fretfind (good resource, btw), software to use, fret distance formulas and methods and so on.
