    I thought about that but decided this route would be a good opportunity for me to learn a skill or three. If this doesn't work out, 1. I'll know why/why not and 2. I can always shrink it a tad. 😊

    Okay... I'm assuming that the nut is off the end of the fretboard. You're not cutting a slot for that, right? Or have I got this all messed up??

    Not sure why you're cutting the end off square if you've already done that. (I watched Robbie O'Brien's LMI power slotting video. He said to cut one end...

    Thanks! :)

    I think for this one, I'll go with 3/16", as that's what the LMI plan shows. But what others are doing, what they know that I've yet to get... That's good stuff!
