Calling All Extra Long Neck Banjo Experts
Posted by Dick D. on 2/4/2017, 10:37 am
Do any of you "extra long neck banjo" folks ever encountered/heard of/seen/possess a curved bridge on your instrument? I bought an extra long neck' banjo from a friend several years ago (although he sanded the brand name off the head stock, I think it's a Goldtone) and just kinda stashed it away for the day I could try to learn to play it. Well, that day has finally arrived and I've been slowly but surely pluckin' away at it. But, today, after after resetting the bridge on my Vega Plectrum, I decided to tackle the extra long neck and realized the bridge was curved. It's 13 inches from the third fret to the middle of the twelfth. Took a guess and set the bridge so that the 26" point runs through the middle of the bridge (side to side) when you're looking straight down on the bridge from above the head. Figured averaging it out would work. Any comments/suggestions? Thanks in advance!
