    3.2mm at the 12th fret is a tiny bit on the high side. It really depends on whether you feel that it affects your playing, though. If you feel that it is hampering you, it can't hurt to sand the...

    Hi Ukutravel

    A bit of bend in the neck is normal. It is called relief. It's hard to tell from the photos, but yours looks pretty normal to me.

    Oh good. Now the main problem is the phrase "pointless non-cognitive murderous ****s" is a real tongue twister.

    Not sure if I'll find time this week either, but just out of interest, how much swearing will you allow? The song I'm thinking of has rather a lot of foul language.

    I was sure I did RHH for a previous season. (looks it up.) Yep. It was season 252. Obviously this is not an entry in this season.

    This kind of goes against the conventional wisdom, but I really like hardwoods (mahogany, koa, mango, etc.) for high G and softwoods (spruce, cedar, redwood, etc.) for low G. That's just a personal...

    I own a soprano, 2 concerts, a tenor, and a guitalele. Swapping takes a minute or so to adjust but it's not a big deal.
