Nut Slot Fender Type Fingerboard

Recommended Posts

the early vintage fenders had the nut slot that followed the 7.5" radius

nuts are either flat bottom or round with a tag in the centre you can cut to give a radius. leave it on an you have a flat

12" raduis and compound aint much different as you can do good bends on a 12"

gibson uses a 12" radius - you can mill the frets on a 12 radius to a compound radius if you does it a certain way - see dan erlewines guitar set and repair book

the compound will let you have a slightly lower action

get a compund if ur buying a neck or fingerboard

12" is a lot easier to make if ur making the fingerboard
