Thanks! So you kept the high E at 25.4, then pushed the extra length into the low end. How do you like that? On my archtop I went with 24.75 to 26", with perpendicular at the 7th. It makes for a bit more angle on the bridge, but I like the way the frets 1-14 feel pretty balanced. And I was dealing with 1.25" of fan vs. your 0.5". I like the idea of less fan. Just enough to give the low end a little help, especially in drop tunings.

Serious food for thought.....

I like it fine. As it's my first multiscale I wanted to see how it feels to play (and sounds) with the slanting at the 1st fret, if I want a bigger difference between the scales I can do that at the bridge. Also I can use the same strings as normal for dropped tunings (Custom light set)
