some time spent with the OM today.

I'll leave it for a week or so under tension to settle then see about a final setup.

because the scale length is slightly shorter than a bouzouki would be I've tilted the neck back an extra couple of degrees to increase the break angle of the strings over the bridge. no where near the angle of a violin, but just a little more than regular to help drive the top. (shorter scale means less tension unless you go up a gauge of strings)
