Welcome to Crimson Guitars and Ben’s home workshop where he is currently building the modern multi-scale NEBULA 2.0 Guitar. In this episode, Ben discovers the Pros and Cons of a Spanish Neck Joint. He plots the neck break angle, bridge height and doesn't have to use complicated Math.

In this series, Ben will be building the new and improved Nebula 2.0 as a custom order. Different from the original, this guitar will be a multi-laminate neck, modern fanned fret, semi-hollow, electro-acoustic beauty. This series should be about 10-12(ish) episodes.
