I have been working on a few guitars since the quarantine saying started, I am getting pretty far along on them, as they are about ready to put the finish on. I usually have two or three going at a time, all in various stages so I can kind of work on what I’m in the mood for. I started thinking about what would be next and I think I’m gonna build one of those mini scales tell me or strap guitars for my grandson and have it ready by his third birthday in June. Then (and the reason for this post) I was thinking about starting three Ricken******-Style guitars at the same time, a 325 style (Lennon inspired) but sort of combining a ‘58 and a ‘64. Black, Bigsby, two-layer pickguard, three pick up and five knobs. I can use a 25” scale rosewood fingerboard and cut it off at the third fret to get a 21.02” scale. Next would be a 360/12 style (Harrison inspired) old style, double bound, and so on. Then a 620 or perhaps a 620/12 (Petty inspired). This brings me to my real question, for these two I need 24 3/4” scale fingerboards. All of the pre-slotted fingerboards that I can find are cut to the true Gibson 24 3/4” scale, which is actually 24 9/16”. Does anyone know if Ricken******’s are actually a true 24 3/4”? I can, if necessary, cut my out slots, but I usually buy them from Luthiers Mercantile International or StewMac but I find the difference in cost and then takes to do it yourself to be cheaper to just buy one directly. I also found that I can buy a bubinga at Rockler locally and I would like to use that on the 620 model. This is going to be a challenging project for the 360/12 and the 620 because I’ve never done those type of position markers either. I am also going to build each one in a different neck attachment type. The 620 will be straight through, the 360 will have a Long tenon and 325 and have either a shorter tenon or A T-block like this I saw online.
