I believe you are thinking of the "stop length."

I think this is the length of the string from the nut to the bridge.

I will leave it to those who do setups to give a more accurate explanation.

My goodness, Falstaff, you are a veritible wizard with these illustrations.

I was going to clean mune up and sed it again in any case but couldn't

have done as well as you have.

I will see what else I can find for you.

This could be a valuable resource - when are you going into print with it?

Wink! Wink!

Print with it? I'm not following your implication.

Stem. I like that. It would be good to have a term for this feature in an f-hole, as it is often very telling. Whether it is overly wide. Whether it is upright or slanted.

Can anyone suggest other terms they have heard applied to this part of an f-hole between the wings?

Excellent thread and nomenclature of photos/diagrams falstaff.

Any chance of doing one for a Peg?

I hope this "Quick Reply" works, as ever since the changes to the site I have been unable to get the "Reply" and "Quote" buttons to work, so only come to this site very occasionally now.
