I am looking for the measurements on a GFI fretboard...I believe they make a 12 string and a 10 string model.
Need to know the width at the roller nut end and the changer end..I owned a GFI SM10 model couple years ago and I know they have a nice silk screen laser etched lexan fretboard..anyone that could give me the measurements off their GFI...I would really appreciate it.
THANKS!!

I received the measurements from a SD10 GFI (thanks Jackie)
The SD10 fretboard is to narrow, so I am down to the measurements from a 12 string GFI fretboard...If anyone has one..
I am trying to replace the fretboard on a Hudson 10 string that has the wide 3/8 string spacing..that is my goal..and it looks like its going to have to be a 12 string fretboard.

Hope this will help you. I play a GFI ULTRA S12 U. It is 24" scale. The fret board is 20 1/2 inches long. 3 1/4" at the nut end, 3 3/4" at the changer end.
Good Luck and Happy Steelin.
