Hi all. I'm planning on building a miniature bass not unlike the 'minibass' thread which was on here a little while ago and I'm wondering what length of rod to use on the neck. The scale length I was planning on was about 18-20'' depending on what length rods I can get. using the Stewmac fret combobulator it tells me that, if my scale length is 18'' then a 22 fret neck would have a fretboard length about 13''. I can get a classical guitar rod which is about 12 1/4'' which doesn't seem far off. I'll obviously be getting some more accurate measurements before I get anything but this post is really just to give you a picture of what I'm trying to do and to see if anyone's got any thoughts on what I should be thinking about when deciding on scale length/rod length/neck length etc. I'm assuming there's a bit of leeway with the length of rod you can use since, for example, Fender and Gibson's scale lengths are different but you could presumably stick the same rod in either, so does anyone have any of your usual helpfil and very valued advice? Thanks.
