    Thanks for that. It does need a tiny bit of refinement but it's a very solid base for a kit.

    I got rid of all my big amps years ago. All I've got now is an Orange Crush 20. My wife gets upset when I go past 3.

    Having never played a multi-scale I have to ask what is jarring about where the parallel fret is? Is it an issue with the fret angle in the upper or lower registers?
