Flattening A Fretboard

Recommended Posts

i don't see a point in having a radius at all, for myself anyways. it seems the flatter the fretboard the easier it is to play. i mean, i wouldn't worry about fretting out notes when bending, thus letting me have lower action, and it just feels better. i have never played a flat fretboard on an electric though, only on acoustic. but i figure it'll be something i'll like. thanks a ton for the help!

I guess it depends on what you're after. A flat fingerboard will help if you're a thumb behind the neck - classical style lead player but for the majority of bluesy, rock & metal players I expect that it would be quite uncomfortable. It's down to personal preference at the end of the day...making & modding guitars is primarily about creating something that you can't get anywhere else, if it's something that you want then go for it.
