Made these during the pandemic from parts and materials I already had laying around the shop. 24 1/4" scale with lowers on strings 2 and 3.

The fry pan has a 24" scale.

Where did you come across that 6-string Emmons fretboard? I could use one or two of those.

Its actually a 10 string Emmons FB, off of an old push pull that Bobbe Seymour gave me when I worked for him at SGN. We pulled it off a a D-10 that we had made into a loafer.

I thought it was a good fit for the Rocket!
