Fret Position Reference Guide For Ukulele, Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, And Other Chromatic Fretted Instruments

Item Number 1390018

Regular price $30.00

Figuring out “where the frets go” is one of the trickiest things about building a guitar or ukulele. This reference guide has detailed charts that show fret placement for every scale length from eight inches to thirty-two inches, in eighth-inch increments.

With this fret guide book you’ll be able to build the “perfect” fingerboard for your next project, and have a string instrument that sounds great.

This is not a book you’ll read from cover to cover - but it IS a book that you’ll keep in your shop, and use on a regular basis!

This fret guide book for building string instruments is published by Folkcraft® Instruments, under the Fingers Of Steel® imprint.

The author/compiler of this reference book is Folkcraft owner/luthier Richard Ash.

Fret Spacing Reference book

We have been designing and building custom mountain dulcimers here in western Washington State for about 8 years and am only sorry it took this long to get this handy reference book. It is most helpful to have a column that shows the note name for each fret. The only thing that would have made it better would to have a column for measurements in fractions of inches for those of us that don't have rulers marked in 1,000's.

overall very good

I liked the set up of the spacing charts, with dimensions from fret to fret and nut to each individual fret it makes it easy to keep on track and avoid accumulated error.A little difficult to zero in to dimensions, but with a good rule and a digital caliper, doable. Happy with purchase.

I ordered fret position book thinking it would really help me out. All measurements are in 100’s of inch. I have yet to find a tape measure that corresponds to these measurements. I do have one in metric so I used Stew Mac’s metric equivalent. Sorry Folkcraft!
