radius of my 1527

I looked at http://www.jemsite.com/axes/htm_features/necks.htm and it said that the radius on the wizard necks is 430 mm. Doesn't that translate to 17.2"? That's a pretty big radius isn't it? I largest radius I've read about for a neck is 16". Is this correct?

Re: radius of my 1527

well it certainly feels like a very flat n fast sotra fingerboard, with very little curvature at all so i would support the fact its gotta a flippin huge radius!!!

Re: radius of my 1527

16.92 inches, to be exact.

There are necks out there with 18"~20" radii; anything 18+ inches is just about flat, if you ask me. I recently made a new fretboard for my RG7621 and I radiused it at 16". You can't tell the difference between the 430mm radius (again, 16.92") fretboard on my UV777BK from the new fretboard I made for the 7621. The difference in height at the center of the fretboard between the two radii is 0.0024". That's twenty-four ten-thousandths of one inch - I verified this by drawing up my plans for the fretboard in CADD and measured. Ain't much.

The flatter fretboards on Ibanez guitars are very comfortable to me...
