HI all, I know this is really a matter of personal preference but I was hoping to glean some insight on this topic from anyone who has owned or played a 20" radius fingerboard. I am looking into getting a seven string guitar with a 20" radius, but I've never played such a flat fingerboard before. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with one, and if so, what your thoughts are on the 20" radius and playability. I mostly like to play lead work, but also play rhythm (writing and recording my own music). Do you think playing chords towards the nut of a 20" radius board is difficult? Do you think a compound radius of 16" to 20" would be noticeable and make any difference? I was told that at a 20" radius, a compound radius from 16" to 20" isn't really making much of a difference. I have heard different, juxtaposing things. Either " 20" radius is too difficult to play and very drastic ", or that " the 20" radius is just a bit flatter than a typical 16" radius." I was just hoping to get some idea about this. I wish I could find one to play near the Niagara Falls / Buffalo NY area, but they are tough to track down and no local shops have any to try out. Let me know what you think and keep shredding!!!!
