Hi Everyone! I'm tinkering around with my first build, a concert size and wanted to know the correct size for a standard concert fretboard. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!

The standard concert scale length is 15", nut to bridge saddle. The standard nut width is 1 3/8". Standard fingerboard thickness varies from 1/8" to 3/16" in thickness. Good luck with your build.

Thanks so much! What about total length and number of frets?

Total length depends on where your sound hole is, how far onto the body you want to carry the fret board and at what fret position are you joining the neck to the body. This could make the fret board anything from say 14 frets plus a bit up to 18 frets plus a bit.
