How to determine the scale of your gitar Answered

Hi Folks,   Measure from the fret side of the nut to the middle of the top of the 12th fret whatever distance that is, double it and thats the scale, for instance my tele is 12 3/4" so double it and my scale is 25.5

Also use this to set intonation from the middle of the  top of the 12th fret in my case with the tele I would measure 12 3/4" to the top middle of the bridge....This is where you start you intonation from. Picture me playing lead with apache' 1979 Hendra 2000 in attendance
