Beautiful work.
Hi Neal,

I am not sure I understand your question.

I set this guitar up as any "standard" guitar. Right now the strings are approx. 6/64"-5/64" at the 12th fret.-it could go a little lower.

The nut is set as if it was a fret higher than the fist fret.


On a slide (Hawaiian) guitar the nut is very much higher so the slide won't hit the frets-so you can't play it like a regular guitar.

It is not a commission and will be for sale-you can email me if you are interested in it ( not sure of the policy on this forum with regard to posting prices, as i am new here.). I usually sell them when I finish the next one,so I have something to show customers. There is one for sale on ebay right now.
