Stretching guitars to the limit


re-fretting to 31-et

When I showed him my calculations and he saw the size of the frets he said it could not be done… and then did it! I won’t tell you the secret, but by clever use of materials and through micro-precision skill, Jerry Crosson of The Fret Workshop in Felixstowe has transformed an ordinary semi-acoustic guitar into a 31-et microtonal masterpiece. Playing is a little tricky, but Thumb’s Tom Martin has quickly mastered this strange fretboard. Debuts on Dec 3rd, Birmingham Conservatoire Recital Hall.
