Hi Malte,

Your fix does the trick - everyting's working as expected now...

I've set a string-thickness-factor in the original coding example in order to ensure that even varying string thicknesses work as expected in spite of the negative string-distance.

Remark: Insted of if clauses, I'd probably just multiply the "half-thicknesses" by (sign string-distance) in order to toggle between + and -.
But that's just a matter of taste... both ways are OK.

How about setting the status to "review"?

Ticket 5025 opened up the possibilty of reversing the order of strings by setting a negative string-distance:

\new FretBoards { 
  \chordmode { 
    \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.string-thickness-factor = #0.3
    \override FretBoard.fret-diagram-details.string-distance = #-1 

Karlin High reported an unwanted side effect of negative string-distance values (see attached image):
The "nut" doesn't properly align with the outer edges of the fretboard.
Reason for misalignment: half-linethickness of the outer strings is effectively being subtracted rather than being added due to the negative sign introduced by the negative string-distance.
