Finding Fretboard Radius

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to calculate a fretboard's radius? I looked at Don MacRostie's "Cone Head" formula, to find the radius at any given point on the board, but that doesn't apply to me because you must already know the radius at the nut in order to determine the radius at other points on the board. Any help is greatly appreciated.

go to stewart mcdonald's website and look at their radius gauges..two plexiglass plates with four radii on each..they're cheap..place it on your pretboard until you find the one that fits..

that's all i've got :D
