"I like the 62cm string length for my personal instruments. Players of modern instruments sometimes feel a little cramped until they get used to it. When they find how easy those monster stretches of Legnani and a few others are they are…"

"Thank you for your prompt reply, Scot. I've just contacted the luthier, and he told me that he produces both 62 and 60 cm. 60 cm is really small, indeed... Almost a terz :) Cheers!"

"Hello Rui. 60cm is a bit on the short side, even for the 19th century guitar,  but not unacceptably so. You will see anywhere from 598/600mm to 655mm but I suppose an average would be in the 620 - 630mm range."

String lengths

Hello everyone.This is the first time I post here in EG&V, due to my recent interest in this subject.I intend to buy a copy of a early guitar, made in Madeira (Portugal), in late XIX century.The string length is 60 cm. Is this an "average" lenght for guitars in this period? Is there a standard? It seems to me a litlle bit small...Thank you very much for your help!Rui NamoraSee More
