Scale Length
The scale length of a guitar is the nominal distance between the nut and the saddle.

Backshall guitars have, as standard, a scale length of 650mm, with 660mm and 640mm available as no cost options.

Instruments with other scale lengths can be made to order, but will cost more as the body size and bracing has to be modified. Please enquire for costs and delivery times.

Neck Width and String Spacing
The width of the neck at the nut largely determines the string spacing, and hence can affect ease of playing. It is usually between 50mm and 54mm.

My standard guitars are 52mm wide at the nut, with an 8.4mm string spacing. String spacing at the bridge is 11.8mm.

These measurements, along with the shape of the neck can be modified on commissioned instruments. Please enquire for more details.
