1 DCBirdMan 3 weeks ago A furious short scale shootout just went down and the smoke has cleared. In one corner, clean 1962 Melody Maker ¾. (narrower neck than its esteemed opponent), rosewood board, stock frets, 1 single coil. 12” radius. In the other corner, recently built mutant Duo Sonic /Jazzmaster =’57 Duo Sonic maple neck w/ big honkin frets, 7.5” radius, marginally wider string spacing, 2 righteous buckers – clearly this one has the advantage? Advantage Melody Maker!Despite slightly more cramped string spacing and less cool rosewood board, and lower profile frets, the better radius, 1.5 pound less, makes the difference! Looking to put in a Duncan Splitbucker to help the sound. http://customshop.seymourdu...So I may eventually sell the Duo Sonic neck w/ Hideous Reality of 7.5 radius, and maybe keep the body in the event some kind of decent radius shortie maple neck ever happens. Won’t hold my breath tho.
