    All the sharp edges are gone. Looks like I have my 7.25 radius. Be sure to look one page back. Most happens the post I did before this one.

    That's turned out great, KC. I share your enthusiasm for the 7.25 radius too. I'm anxious to see where the Strat goes from here.

    Cool--that is a more normal radius for a Fender
    (I believe that's what my Mustang is--or at least close to it)

    12" radius is more a Gibson thing--and shredder necks woudl tend to be flatter.

    ALthough I did start on classical--and it's quite flat.
    But it doesn't bother me changing between them.
    Although my Mustang is not conducive to me playing slide...

    I could probably do okay on he re-radiusing one--but it would removing & replacing the frets that would mess me up the most

    Thanks guys. I really enjoy doing the neck's because it was something that I always wanted to be able to do. I too was intimidated by it. With some practice it's not that scary just time consuming.

    And a good thing comes out of an otherwise not so good purchase

    In addition to not having any string preference for any radius--I have a guitar with almost no frets (They're there--but barely--on purpose (the Les Paul fretless wonder type frets) and also huge jumbo frets.
    Not to mention a fretless bass.


    But give me a V neck--and I don't like it
