Peg Layout

Proper layout of the pegs is important to avoid string-peg contact (and a tuning nightmare).

Here I layout the peg pattern for the Titian project.   I chose to follow this scroll pattern as it is fairly small (and hence light and less tiring on the player).  The pegs were spaced at 14.5mm, 23mm and 14.5mm and a line draw between the E-D-A Pegs (as appearing in order viewed from the right side).  I estimated the largest dimensions of the pegs and then adjusted their relative positions to prevent any string to peg contact.

Layout for Titian Variation #1

This is the completed pattern (April 4, 2011 – Titian variation #1).  I rotated the scroll slightly with respect to the neck.  In most cases the edge of the front side of the scroll is in line with the base of the finger board, that is now the case for this pattern.

Final pattern used in the Titian project.

Let me know what you think...
