Fingerboard Radius on Prima Artist, Lee Sklar Signature, Z Series, Super J and Afterburner Series
Fingerboard radius – compound, 7-1/2” to 25”
You can build bass fingerboard with either a single radius (cylindrical) or a compound radius (conical). We offer both types.
On our Canadian made basses we do the more complicated compound radius. We like it for a few reasons:
- We can have a very vintage feeling 7-1/2” radius at the nut for comfortable play in the lower frets.
- We can also have a much flatter radius at the bridge to make play easier for the plucking hand.
- The flatter radius at the bridge keeps the strings a more consistent distance from the pickups for more even response.
