    Hi guys,

    I've been driving myself crazy trying to find a website I have used before. On the site you can put in fret scale and all kinds of other variable and it then will out put a pdf you can print and use as a template. It can do all kinds of crazy stuff like fan frets etc.

    I used to come across it all the time but for the life of me can't remember what I ever typed in to find it. Been driving my self mad for 2 days but the beer or old age has caught up with me.

    I want to make a little soprano guitar sized tele for my daughter. From what I have found the scale is 15.75. I have found plenty of sites that will give me the measurements but I don't trust my measuring devices.

    Thanks,
    Bryan

    I think "wfret" is the one he is talking about, but I can't seem to find it either.

    Boy... I downloaded it, and got a bunch of errors until I created the folders it said it couldn't find... Then, I had to figure out what .xps file extension is... However, I got it to work... Thanks for the link...

    Thanks guys. Paul I appreciate you posting the pdf. I have came across wfret and forgot about it also. The thing I was talking about was just a website, not program. The pdf even had the strings drawn it so you set nut spacing etc. Would probably have to take the pdf to kinkos to print it full size.

    It's going to drive me to drink.

    Stewmac has a fantastic online fret calculator also. It will give you correct scale for different body and bridge combos too. It just doesn't print a graphic like wfret will.

    Just be mindful that anything you print out is subject to variations in humidity, printer accuracy, paper quality, and all manner of other variables. Never rely simply on the printout without triple checking every measurement.
