Yeah, because it could turn out to be 12, 13, 14, 12.9801223, 13.276785, or whatever.

Loving this build thread.

I didn't even notice those! It's like listening to the Dark Side of the Moon. You just keep discovering new things with repeated listening!

Dale and I both agreed the parallelograms were exceptionally parallel. He said this is some of his most parallel work to date. And I will only play this guitar while sipping sweet tea.

I like how there is not a huge access hole made for the truss rod. Gibson should take note.

What is the headstock tilt angle?
