    I am trying to recreate the sound of a Rabab via a banjo uke by adding a flare on the neck which will receive 5-7 sympathetic strings. I have drawn the concept. Will you be able to make the neck for me for a reasonable price.
    I am in Edmonton Canada

    WEll I have my first bass coming together fast thanks to you. My problem is I need to know what spacing my frets should be. The frets are right for the length as a guitar but i am out of my cumfort zone now. I am used to 34″ scale bass.

      I have not been able to find the tattoo grip turnarounds recently on eBay. Lately I have been 3D printing them. The zero fret does not have to be a larger size than the rest of the frets, but it makes it easier to get the proper string height.
