Give up the extra two frets to the body?

  • I have one of those AJL j'attendrai models. It's a really cool guitar. Feels and plays different than a traditional 14 fret oval hole long scale (and obviously plays different than a 12 fret short scale). It sounds a little different, too. AJL explained this by saying that the bridge is technically in the "wrong" place on the guitar because it has to be moved forward to compensate for the extra two frets the neck moved.

    I like all the frets I can get. Sometimes I'll play a 12 fret that simply sounds terrific. There's a sound associated with have the bridge centered on the sound board, but I've learned on the 14 fret cutaways and am not willing at this point to give up the advantages. Mostly I can find a great sounding guitars without giving up the access, so as tempting as it has been, my 2, 12 fretters and non cutaways don't get used.
