I get confused real easy when it comes to fact and figures . I am making two stick type dulcimers.I am nearing the time when I need to fret the things. So I get on the computer ,go to this site and start studying. After a lot of reading I am still tore up. I have went to Stewmac and Wfret and some more like it and the numbers don't not seem to hold up. I have a 28 inch scale lap dulcimer that I tried the numbers to and they are not even close. I know that the fault is on my end but I don't know how to fix it.
Would some one send me the correct numbers for a 25.5 Three string stick dulcimer. I want to finish these things by the Holiday.Thank You
Attached is a PDF file of 25.5 to print out. I made it at http://www.ekips.org/tools/guitar/fretfind2d/
It prints on 2 pages. I cut the width, tape it together and use spray adhesive to position on the fretboard.
