    Any possibility of shortening the scale length or would that make all the other dimensions wrong?

    I've had this in storage from when we sold our machine shop and was gonna sell it but I found a place for it in the back of my shop. It's worth more than I coulda got out of it if I sold it anyways.
    It's actually a pretty cool little machine. 1966 vintage

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Might just toss it in storage and use it for a "super concert " ukulele in the future.

    Ken, Thanks for the information on my Rockwell. We used it a lot in our shop and it's still nice and tight. When puch came to shove I just really couldn't part with it.
    I still have the original nomenclature that came with the machine.

    Not sure possibly, might have to try one without a zero fret as well as a proper or shorter scale length.

    Has the fretboard been cut/glued on? Is the neck mounted? If not, why not experiment with a shorter scale length. StuMac has a calculator for that.
    ...Or, is the neck solid or is it glued up? Maybe cut it at the scarf joint, or where the scarf joint would be, and glue on a new head, allowing for the extra length desired.
    Just a couple of thoughts.
