Neck Radius

We offer a large variety of different fingerboard radius choices.

The radius of the fingerboard is expressed by a number (usually from 7-1/4" to 16"). This number relates to the degree of curvature of the fingerboard from one side to the other when sighting the neck at the heel or headstock. The higher the number, the flatter the radius.

We also offer compound radius fingerboards.

A compound radius fingerboard starts at one radius at the nut and flattens out as it transitions to the heel of the neck. The compound radius is very popular with players who like to do a lot of chording and soloing all over the neck.
