Hello everyone. I am a new member to the forum and I am excided about having such a resource available. I have not built any instruments at this time however, I am researching and planning to make an 18th century style guitar. For now i have another question that has come up among the pickers I hang around with.

Can someone tell me why guitars are marked on the ninth fret and banjos and
mandolins are marked on the tenth fret?
