And re-radiusing the fretboard would do some damage to the inlay work......and the fretboard itself isn't cheap.
Ohh, i see..
Since this is the case and you realluy want the board i think you should do this:
Try to draw an Arc of 16" radius with a cord of something that let you do that extensión..then mark the center of that Arc and from that point, start to draw a 12" Arc. to both side of the point , of course the point of pivoting have to move 4" closer in a straight line to the Mark point... when you do the new arc you should see that the new arc is beneath of the fisrt one..
now, you should mesure the diferent in the extremes of the Arcs using the width of the board as reference for this..
Then you should compare if there is enought material on a Jumbo fret for this diference..
I hope you understand what i just write
, because reading it i think it can be a little confuse..
this is something i just thought using a geometric solution..
and the leanguage don´t help me to much...
