Prostheta Posted December 9, 2006 Report Share Posted December 9, 2006 Considering a floating trem build (later next year, too much work right now) and something got me thinking. The Schaller Floyds have a nut radius of 14" which is a pain as the pre-radiused boards Stewmac sell (for convenience, don't get me started!) are 12" for 25-3/4" and 10" through 16" for the compound radius 25-1/2" boards. How far off perfect would an incorrect radius on a locking nut to the fingerboard be? Alternatives I've considered are: - modifying the radius of the 14" nut by deepening the existing slots (PITA) - altering the radius over the frets when levelling, closer to 14" (would require very high fretwire?) - ordering an alternative radius nut (cost) - dealing with the fact the setup won't be perfect Additionally, what radius nut would you use for a 10" through 16" compound radius? 10" at a guess. Until my current projects are complete, this is purely academic although worthwhile knowledge to plan around of course :-D TIA, - Carl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
