Currently about to go ahead with my first custom build, pretty damn excited about it! It's a tele shaped multiscale six string, from 28 - 30 inches. Based (apart from body and string number) around the ibanez m8m. Everyone i've spoken to has told me i'm mad for going ahead with such a long scaled 6 string. But truth be told I think it'll suit me perfectly. My band plays around the F - G# range, but we have never wanted to leave 6 strings. So i think the longer scale will suit it perfectly.
What do you guys reckon?

Photo is just a basic concept. (eg frets not to scale, neck length not to scale) Just sent to the builder as a reference more for the body aesthetics.
