    I would go with 27 frets, upper frets on 36 fret neck will be a nightmare to play on if the scale length is under like 30".

    Thank you for the help.
    My luthier told me that I could have 29 frets and a neck pickup. They will be close together, but it's doable.
    I don't know if there's a lot of difference between a neck pickup on a 27 frets guitar and a neck pickup on a 29 frets guitar.

    Cool, no it's probably only like a cm closer to the bridge than 27 frets. Shouldn't affect tone much

    Ok, nice.
    I'm doing some compromises on register, but it's quite fun and exciting for me to think about this guitar project :)
    Any clues for the midi knob ?
