    A suggestion for a gear session. The various aspects of the guitar neck. Scale length effects, Fender vs. Gibson vs. PRS. I know that the different scale lengths have an effect on string tension, but how about a practical side by side demonstration along with personal observations. Do scale lengths affect fret lengths? How about fan fretted necks? Then of course there is fret wire size and neck radius variations. How much neck relief is really useful? There are so many possible things to talk about that it could take up more than one session. I would love to hear from someone like Grif who has played many different guitars and has a proven ability to clearly articulate complex subject matter.
