Re: Help Needed abt Fretboard radius
A compund radius neck is one that has two diferent radiuses--one towards the nut, and the other towards the heel. A common compund radius id 10" at the nut and 16" at the heel.
What is the best radius for you? How are we supposed to know? You are the only one that can decide that--what feels good to you.
As far as rosewood vs. ebony, ebony is classier, denser, and more expensive. More of the higher end guitars use ebony instead of rosewood. There's nothing wrong with rosewood, but ebony is just a better fingerboard wood.
You can find answers to all of these questions, except "Which is the best radius for me?" by doing a little research. Do a Google search for comound radius fingerboards, and you'll get a bunch of results.
