Re: Radius a 470?

If it's AANJ it will look cool and blend easily with the neck area. I would go a step further and sculp little scoop-outs un the cutaways like ESP and Warmoth. The old style square heel would be harder to blend but I don't even think there are many 4xx with square heels. Don't use a hand router unless you make a jig. It will fall all over the place as you approach the cutaways. Table router is best, overhead or underneath.
