A Question For All You Black Dog Experts!

Hi there

I know that the original Black Dog had a Roadstar neck, but am curious to know what radius the board on it would have been?

From what I can tell the JS neck is one of only a few which has a 240/250mm radius, so that's obviously Joe's preference, but wouldn't a Roadstar have had something more like 430mm? Would it have been an Ultra or would they have put a rounder board on it for him??

I only ask as I think the curve of the JS board feels noticably different (and to me at least, more comfortable) than flatter necks....

(Apologies if this has been covered before, I searched but coiuldn't find it)
