Thanks for all the kind responses.

I'm really looking forward to this too. I've been very curious to build a short multi-scale. I imagine I'm not the first but I've never seen or played one. I'm expecting a great combo of comfort and tone.

And yes, it is my adjustable neck that has been standard since 2009.

Thanks for looking. More pictures soon....

I'm getting back to work on this one. I thought this might be of interest to some builders. This is a jig for cutting fret slots on a multi-scale. It's simple, easy to build, and works really well. Just a table saw sled with an acrylic plate on top. Once built, I raised the blade into the acrylic to score it with the exact path of the blade. Then I use the score mark to line up the template which is taped to the fretboard. As you see, the template has to be reversed. The stuff that says "P80" is psa sandpaper to keep the fretboard from slipping once it's lined up.

Hoping to get this one ready to finish next week.

I think Kent's standard neck is adjustable.

OK, this one is ready for finish.

Glad you like the fretboard. I managed to find a headplate that is a perfect match. More in a month or so...

If Kent is making your guitar, there is nothing to worry about except coping with excitement. I have one made by him and thus far, only praises I hear from my friends who have tried it. Congrats! You are only to be delighted.
