Radiused fingerboard


#1

Does anyone have any experienced with radiused fingerboards and if so can you offer any pros and cons?

I’ve played on a radiused fingerboard on a GoodTimes 2 banjo. I was surprised at how natural it felt. I really can’t say it was better or worse than a flat fingerboard.

One issue you may want to consider is the problem of finding readily available bridges if you ever need to replace yours. My local music store only carries flat bridges.

Great point. Thanks to the internet they should be easy to find. Thanks Mark!

My Huber is radiused. I went with that because I play guitar a lot and wanted the same “feel.” After all these years, I’m still not convinced. When I play a traditional flat board banjo there is something I really like/miss. I may go to a flat next time!
