#21 has strings

This is my #21, 632mm short scale, Bouchet bracing, Swiss spruce, Madagascar rosewood body and fingerboard, bois de rose bridge, African Blackwood headplate, maple binding and secondary headstock plate.

Sound clip with Savarez carbon strings. Getting some reasonable playing has been difficult with the crowded scale and string distances (52 at the bridge, 38 at the nut).

    • Thank you very much!

      Yes it is correct, 632mm scale, 38mm string spacing at the nut and 52.5 at the bridge. The total neck width at the nut is 49mm. This one was made for a young lady with very small hands.
