Fingerboard Slotting

When ordering one of our commonly used fingerboard scales,
simply choose the product with the scale length you want.
 
We slot with a nut slot offset to correct for fret saw blade kerf for compensation purposes, so that the bridge-edge of the slot is at true zero. This method of slotting works well for most builders. To bring the breakaway point of the nut slot closer to the bridge, it is easy to file away the amount of material desired. This method will not allow a zero fret.
 
Our understanding of nut compensation is summed up in this article: 
Scale Length & Intonation
 
The kerf of the fret slot measures approximately .024”. This size slot easily accommodates most (not all) standard fretwire sold by us and other suppliers.
 
NOTE: If you are making a Fender™-style neck and need some extra wood behind the nut position, order the SVF25.5F. We always leave approximately 1" behind the nut slot on this scale, which does not leave us enough room to slot more than 22 frets on most fingerboards. If you need more than 22 frets, let us know that it is okay to cut the first slot near the very end of the board (rather than leaving wood behind the nut).
 
IMPORTANTPlease specify the number of frets needed in the Special Instructions Box of your Shopping Cart.
