    Ron's not actually such a terrible person, although he's opinionated as can be at his worst he is still nowhere near as belligerent as the guy who ran the now defunct non-octave.com. That guy would write 10+ page rants against members who disagreed with him on any matter music related or not, and he had a deep hatred for academia in general (so do I but not on his level).

    Holy shit! I knew people thought Ron was a douche, but woah, a stalker? I was even considering buying microtonal stuff from him in the future, screw that!

    That's an interesting unprovoked insult, why do you think he is a 'jack .. off'? Do you know the guy? Chris has been an online aquaintance of mine for years and is one of the most unpretentious, productive and intuitively talented musicians in the microtonal community, very courteous and helpful. You can give him a guitar, guitar-synth or keyboard in any tuning and he'll intuitively come up with something good using his ears and without referring to microtonal theory. He can play anything from avant-garde, ambient through to blues and King Crimson-esque prog rock. He invents and builds new types of instrument and is endlessly inspired and creative.
    Peace :cool:

    Some other options for those who want a microtonal guitar, it doesn't have to be expensive:
    Get a local luthier to build you a replacement neck for a bolt-on guitar, just use http://www.ekips.org/tools/guitar/fretfind2d/ to create a list of fret measurements and give it to your luthier.
    Alternatively a luthier could remove your fretboard and replace it with a microtonal one.
    Defretting a guitar is a DIY job, you could then invent your own movable/replaceable frets.
    Another trick is the 'spiral fret'. A single length of nylon line wrapped tightly around the neck in a spiral, located by slots cut into the edge of the fretboard. You could even have many different slots for different tunings: Uncle Bob Project-Design Issues

    No need to apologize, this is the kind of necrobump that's actually worthwhile and interesting rather than simply bumping a thread to post one word in response to a quote years later like some folk do :lol:
    More photos in better lighting and some clips of how it sounds in the coming days would be much appreciated!
