Whitey Neck Radius?

Postby clutch73 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 2:36 pm

Does anyone know the fingerboard radius and what size frets Jake's Fender/Charvel had? Was it a 7.25 inch radius? Thanks!

The ESP model had a 12 inch radius, correct?

it's a 70's strat...so the same as that. 7.5 I believe, yes. It's a 3 bolt...I think the nut width is 1 and 5/8th's as well.

He had it repainted at Charvel. It's a Fender strat.

Another Jake fan in Austin...NICE!

Jake had the neck shaved down for his small hands so the radius will be smaller again.

those 70's necks are already pretty small...and if Jake shaved the neck down, that would not affect the fretboard radius. The would have to have taken off the frets, sanded the rosewood fretboard, re-fretted the guitar. Did they do that? Otherwise, the radius should have been stock 70's strat specs.
