Recommendations Received from Ted at the Clubhouse

Ted mentioned Zither pin tuners are viable for a lot of strings in a tight place plus cheap and easy too. Passive aluminum truss was another good suggestion I received. I also liked his idea about using Steinberg type bridge tuners on both nut and bridge positions so my instrument won't taper like a guitar as it would if using the Steinberg nut.

First time build

I have ideas on what to build, just need to verify bridge to bridge length.
I have a 24.75" scale, which I understand will be length between bridges, however ,y box width us 11" which puts bridge in middle of box and 2-3" of fretboard overhang onto box.
Is this thinking correct? Would rather not cut into top of box for first build sync most have bridge positioned about 2/3-3/4 towards box end
Any guidance appreciated
