Book Synopsis
Figuring out "where the frets go" is one of the trickiest things about building a lap dulcimer. Our handy reference guide has detailed charts that show fret placement for every scale length from eight inches to thirty-two inches, in eighth-inch increments.

Are you building a traditional diatonic instrument? You're covered! Each chart has twenty-one whole-number frets.

Building a chromatic (or partially-chromatic) instrument? We've included all of the "half-number frets" as well. From the 6 1/2 and 13 1/2, to the 1 1/2 and 8 1/2 frets, all the way to a fully-chromatic instrument.

All charts show the exact locations (to the thousandth of an inch) for the nut, bridge, and thirty-six frets (21 whole-number frets, plus the "half-number" frets). Each fret location is identified three ways: 1) inches to previous fret; 2) inches to nut; 3) inches to bridge.
