    Anyone? I see sources for other scales, but not that one. Doesn't have to have radius.

    I believe that Luthiers Mercantile will pre-slot and radius to any spec you like.

    How about buying a slotted 25.5" fretboard and then cut it off at the first fret? Or if you want a Fender style nut just use the first fret slot as one of the nut slot "walls" if you know what I mean? Makes a 24.07" scale, might work?

    I'd need a 24 fret if I did that, because I want to end up with 22. That would be a last resort if I couldn't find a source.

    I called LMI and they can do the custom work so I'll go with that.
