How so ??


Read my earlier post. The back scale is longer this way, but it has nothing to do with the angle of bearing. This length of back scale probably has no ill effect, but it is wayyyyy more than enough to allow bridge/soundboard movement so it has no distinct advantage except as has been mentioned it could be perceived to look better or be easier to string.

Wow, thanks for those very nice photos. Does the CFX kind of look like a scowling Kabuki mask there at the end of the bass strings? :-)
