Title: electric neck radius
Post by: kaos on November 28, 2010, 05:36:25 PM
I read that the neck radius of the RS-4 is twenty inches.  Does that make it a fingerstyle electric?

If you want it to be.Twenty inch's is a rather flat fingerboard a classical player would love it.I've played a couple and there very nice{ok I did a quiky setup on one}.I play fingerstyle by default since I grew tired of picks slipping out of my grip.

I believe it pretty much mirrors the fingerboard radius of their acoustics. I like fingerboards with a 10" radius, but the Larrivee neck is very comfortable to me.

The acoustics have a compound radius, starting at 17" and ending up at around 21" at the heel.  (been that way for decades)  A compound radius is normally a feature found on high end custom instruments.  Larrivee is the oly large builder I know of that has this as a standard feature.
