Fingerboard Radius Question...


Recommended Posts

For the life of me, I just can't understand fingerboard radius measurements. I mean, I know that the smaller the radius, the more curved the fingerboard is, and that there are compound radius's where the fingerboard progresses from curved near the nut to flatter on the higher frets for bending, BUT what on earth is the actual measurement of? What is 7.5" radius a measurement of? Where is the 7.5 from?? This may be quite simple, and I don't even need to know, but for the life of me I can't figure it out, and nothing I've read has explained it! Haha, thanks :D

Yeah, now I want you to find out what the radius of the Earth is supposed to be, then make some radius gauges to check it, and you need to check it all over, and tell us if the radius is off anywhere. If I find out Canada is a compound radius, I'm going to march right up there with a huge sanding block.

If I figured it right (and I probably didn't) the radius of the earth is approximately 7930.5 miles. Give or take. But don't lose a bet over it. :D
