    There is no apparent reason not to be possible. Fret layout is independent of board/string radius and spacing. These are essential and independent data when designing/building a guitar. Only after these does one decides on hardware (bridge, pickups, tuners, etc), materials and/or construction methods and other dimensions.

    very possible. Pretty sure I've seen multiscales with 12-16" radius before.

    I believe most Strandbergs are compound radius as well, I think my one is 14 - 16" or something like that

    Nice, yeah I just didn't know because I have never seen a compound radius MS before.

    I never researched them until recently as I just got my first Multiscale and never look into strandberg.

    I was ideally looking for a 12-16" with a 1" fan 7 string Multiscale with the KM Thin C. I basically need a custom shop Schecter but was trying to see if I can get something like this in the production world.
