Rounding Body


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm planing to route the backside body edge to get a rounded shape. I would like to know

what's the most common radius used to do that? I was thinking using a 3/8" radius

roundover bit with a 1/4" shank, but maybe is a small one... any help is welcome :D

I think Strats use a 1/2" radius roundover on front and back, but if you're looking for a more subtle rounding, 1/4" (which I used on my tele project) is nice.

Thank you! I'm building a PRS-like guitar and I was thinking using a 5/16" or a 3/8" radius roundover.
